“Walmart has the facilities, geographic reach and systemic infrastructure and expertise that would make them the only corporation that FEMA and DHS might partner with for some future national emergency. Nobody else, including UPS and Fedex can do what Walmart can do. Nor can FEMA or DHS manage a nationwide materials movement & inventory allocation scheme”
I would seriously question whether any Government agencies have people smart enough to establish the ties and cooperation required to pull that off. 75 years ago, no question, but now?
