Jaguar Land Rover avoids UK border chaos so far

Jaguar Land Rover has not viewed any affect so considerably from congestion at United kingdom ports, its mother or father Tata Motors explained on Thursday, even as several countries slash transport ties with Britain due to a fast-spreading new variant of the coronavirus.

Toyota brought forward its Christmas output breaks at crops in England and France right after transport disruption hit sections materials.

Honda had to cease output at its Civic manufacturing unit in Swindon, England, previously this thirty day period mainly because of a scarcity of sections. It resumed output about a 7 days later.

The COVID-19 pandemic has compounded challenges that were being previously influencing automakers forward of Brexit, with the looming end to the transition period of time greatly anticipated to trigger delays at ports regardless of the final result of talks on a trade offer.

Jaguar Land Rover halted output at its British factories for a 7 days in November final yr to mitigate any prospective affect from a no-offer Brexit forward of the then Oct. 31 deadline.
