Recently reports emerged that Pak Suzuki was facing issues in delivering cars on time, especially the Cultus and Swift hatchbacks.
“We are unable to deliver the Cultus and Swift cars that were supposed to be delivered in November ,” a company official said on January 23. “This is due to supply chain issues the industry is facing.”
According to another source in the company, many car parts come from Japan where production has been affected due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Shipments from Japan come after stopping at places like Singapore.
Shipping lines are short on manpower, which has slowed down the entire process of shipping goods.
The auto industry is not the only one that is facing this problem. International trade as a whole has been affected because of choked shipping lines.
Work at ports slowed down because of a smaller workforce and the COVID-19 restrictions. It has been taking more time to unload cargo from a vessel.
