    If you listen long enough you can hear just about anything. I can't speak for the entire industry but in our area the growers formed a marketing co-op several years ago. We haven't experienced any of the logistic problems mentioned in the article
    No problem finding trucks, and no problem finding carriers.
    Destination might have something to do with it. Most of our almonds go to directly to Europe.

    Trust me...California almonds are being shipped. I service a natural food business, and they're getting almonds up their butt and out both ears.

    Like anytime shipping comes up, they arn't really complaining that they can't find shippers. They are complaining they can't find shippers willing to run for $1.00 / mile or some absurdly low number like that.

    That’s right
    Throw a $6 per mile rate on it and guys would be deadheading to move it

    Guess the new ruling about lease operators will make it even worse .

    n the state just decided not to allow a new desalination plant


    Elections have consequences.

    Price of almonds should be dropping. If not, then maybe this is bs.
