Leaked emails reveal that Amazon.com is stockpiling products made in China over fears that coronavirus will harm its supply chain — after the company said the outbreak will cause ‘no interruptions’ to operations. Business Insider reports that Amazon reached out to a number of suppliers last week to quickly increase its inventory of products made in China.
In the email, Amazon said the move is to ”prepare for possible supply chain disruptions due to recent global events originating in China,” and told third-party sellers they should be taking ”precautions” to protect their seller account performance ratings.
