From Farm to Table

The United States agricultural supply chain has many components—export, import, and domestic shipments; shipments by trucks, trains, ships, pipelines, and airplanes; deliveries to grocery stores, restaurants, and schools; and direct e-commerce deliveries to people's homes. All methods of food transportation need to function efficiently for the agricultural supply chain to function effectively. Fortunately, the food supply chain usually works well, and enables end consumers to obtain the foods they want, where and when they want them. This article provides an overview of the movement of agricultural products from their origin to the consumer.
