Not that long ago there were announcements that there was a lorry driver shortage  to which deliveries to supermarkets could be slowed down , and yet iv noticed in both Lidl and asda that this isn't the case ,

recently it seems that men retiring from the army many of who learning to drive heavy goods vehicles , which will help ease the deliver problems even though it will take a little while before we see the difference.

Q; have you noticed any differences in the way supermarkets are still getting deliveries into their supermarkets .


There are some items that can vanish for weeks on end at my Lidl.  I doubt it's a shortage of drivers though as other stuff is well stocked. I imagine it's problems with specific suppliers for some reason or other.

The DVLA are still all skiving working from home. I don't think my neighbour has had his HGV returned yet.  My daughter is having trouble getting a log book they failed to return months back. I expect she'll end up having to buy a replacement and she is miffed.

I get home deliveries from Tesco. SO far, absolutely no problems - one item a few weeks ago (can't remember what it was) was substituted with something just as acceptable - and that's it
Thank you for the days, the days you gave me

Funny how the shortage of HGV drivers just stopped, plus the forecasted food shortages, not forgetting empty petrol pumps   [2040]


Now with all the price hikes it won't matter if they haven't got what you want you wouldn't be able to afford it anyway.
