Honda plans to cut back production at plants in Ohio, Indiana and Ontario because of labor disputes that have snarled shipments at 29 ports on the West Coast.
Toyota's North American plants are also making changes because of shipment delays. The automaker said it has adjusted overtime at some of its plants.
The labor tension has slowed delivery of "critical parts to keep the production lines running smoothly and efficiently," said Honda spokesman Mark Morrison.
Parts such as electronics and transmissions are in low supply, he said.
Starting today, Feb. 16, Honda planned to adjust production at six plants:
- Honda Manufacturing of Indiana in Greensburg
- Honda of America Manufacturing in Ohio: Marysville Auto Plant, East Liberty Auto Plant, Anna Engine Plant
- Honda Transmission Manufacturing of America in Ohio, Russells Point
- Honda of Canada Manufacturing in Alliston, Ontario.
