I'm sure Jack was referring to the local problem of heavy traffic here
in Sevier County during the peak tourist season. It's not uncommon for
us to get deliveries late or have outbound shipments not picked up on
time because trucks get slowed down coming down 66 from I-40. Even the
package carriers have been known to leave us hanging from time to time.
The "import" comment is about finding qualified staff. Many of us who
work here (including myself) came here from elsewhere to work for Ten-Tec.
