An ongoing blockade at one of North America's busiest land border crossings is starting to hit Canadian vehicle production.
Stellantis confirmed that its Windsor Assembly Plant "had to short shift its first shift due to parts shortages" on Tuesday. The plant was running on Wednesday morning.
"We continue to work closely with our carriers to get parts into the plant and, at this time, expect that afternoon shift will start as scheduled," the automaker said in a statement to Automotive News Canada.
Meanwhile, Unifor Local 200 President John D'Agnolo said Ford Canada idled its engine assembly operations in Windsor on Wednesday, but that "we will be running [Thursday]."
