Toyota has announced the temporary shutdown of its production in Pakistan once again due to supply chain issues. The automaker had previously suspended production at its Karachi plant for a few days in February for the same reason.
According to a statement released by the company, the suspension will take effect from March 25 and will last for four days, until March 28. Toyota’s suppliers are reportedly facing difficulties in procuring raw materials, which has led to a shortage of parts and components for production.
The temporary shutdown will affect the production of Toyota’s popular models, including the Corolla and Yaris, which have been in high demand in Pakistan. The automaker has assured customers that it is working to resolve the supply chain issues and will resume production as soon as possible.
This is not the first time that Toyota has faced production disruptions in Pakistan due to supply chain issues. The company had also suspended production in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which had disrupted global supply chains.
The latest shutdown is expected to cause inconvenience to customers who have been waiting for their orders to be fulfilled. However, Toyota has assured them that it will prioritize the delivery of vehicles as soon as production resumes.
