Here’s why Pak Suzuki and several other auto companies are facing ‘Car Delivery Issues’
Lately, the automaker has been struggling to maintain its top position in the production and sales of its vehicles in Pakistan.
The Pak-Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) is a Japanese automotive firm known for assembling the highest number of cars in Pakistan. However, the automaker has been struggling lately to maintain its top position in the production and sales of its vehicles in Pakistan.
Recently, the PSMC took to Facebook to disclose that it is facing difficulties in delivering vehicles to customers on time. In a Facebook post, the Japanese automaker shared:
Consequent to post-pandemic related interruptions and delays in the global supply chain of imports, parts, and supplies, there is a delay in delivery periods of a few Pak Suzuki car models to customers.
Here is the full message the company shared on the social media platform:
According to media reports, deliveries for the Suzuki Swift and the Suzuki Cultus are facing delays due to:
- A shortage of their parts
- A backlog in deliveries since November last year
Talking about the shortage of vehicle parts, a PSMC official reported:
The majority of PSMC’s parts are imported from Japan, where the production has stalled due to the pandemic lockdowns.
Shabbir-ud-Din, the Director of Sales and Marketing at Changan Master Motors, verified:
The ports have laid off a massive chunk of the workforce, which has resulted in the stagnation of trade and commerce activities across the globe. It has affected many carmakers; several auto companies are currently facing similar issues.
Reports state that this phenomenon has increased the cost of parts by a massive degree. Sabir Sheikh, the Chairman of the All Pakistan Motorcycle Association, said:
The containers that cost $800 are now costing $4,000 to import parts and other things from China.
