Due to the recent earthquake in Japan, some automakers have cut production vehicles. This is because the parts are available to complete the vehicles on the production line. From this, I want to know the adjustments made by the car manufacturers of spare parts to fix the problem ? And , how does this affect the supply chain in terms of supply and costs?
