Home Depot’s supply chain is large and diverse enough to weather disruptions including the recent shutdown of trucking company Yellow, one of its carriers, the big box retailer told Kiplinger. 

“As a regular course of business, we always have plans in place for potential disruptions to any of our partners,” a Home Depot spokesperson said. “We have a large and diverse supply chain with a number of partners, so we’re accustomed to being flexible and agile when there are disruptions.”
