By a large disturbance in the distribution of Albert Heijn supermarket shelves will host Sunday are planned. The company calls it a serious process incident ‘, indicated in an internal memo that is recognized by NU.nl.

It is a technical failure, said a spokesman for the supermarket confirming the news. According to the memo, the impact of the failure “Unfortunately much at all distribution centers.” However, it is unclear how many stores will stock missing and how many products in this respect. The spokesman calls it “super annoying.”

Many shops partially or not supplied

In the memo, which was sent Saturday evening around dinner time, that “many stores have not received their full supplies fresh and Houdbaar, and some of the shops even not be supplied.”

The spokesman explains: “We work with might to restore possible the shelves so quickly.” It is unclear how long it will take. According to the memo shops from Monday to expect an increased supply, but the supermarket “at least until Wednesday” necessary to restore the whole store image.

Stores several times a day supplies

It makes no sense to early Sunday morning to go to the supermarket in the hope still be assured of messages, the spokeswoman stressed. “The stores are stocked several times a day. It is not that the stores at 9:00 am are full, and at 15.00 o’clock in the afternoon not. That depends on the moment.”

The distribution interference comes at a particularly unfavorable time. Since Prime Minister Rutte announced ten days ago that people because of the coronavirus that had teleworking possible and that events were not there for days was hoarded heavily in supermarkets. Recalling Rutte and the supermarket chains not to do, brought no solace. It was Albert Heijn still not managed to bring the shop replenish the old level came before the big distribution fault (which also has nothing to do with hoarding).

Catching was ‘barely visible’

“The past week have colleagues working very hard to walk in arrears to meet the demand of our customers. Together we were almost done, the recovery was just visible,” according to the internal memo. “The process of incident could not come at a more unfortunate time today. We had last week made a big step forward, it feels like a step backward.”
