US: Extreme supply chain problems dreaded regarding unvaccinated drivers
A mid-January deadline for the vaccine mandate was announced by the U.S. in mid-October. Last week, Canada announced a Jan.
15 deadline for truckers crossing into this country. According to Stephen Laskowski, president of the Canadian Trucking Alliance, thousands of Canadian truckers won’t be vaccinated against COVID-19 by a deadline imposed by governments on both sides of the border.
This will create even more problems for a supply chain already stretched thin by the global pandemic.
Based on reports from trucking companies, Laskowski estimates that up to 20 per cent of the 120,000 Canadian truckers who regularly cross into the U.S. might not be vaccinated by the time the deadline rolls around. This estimates are frightening to people in industries as varied as fruit and vegetable imports to auto parts manufacturing, who say it could wreak havoc on an already-reeling supply chain.
