Daimler Truck Holding AG, one of the largest truck manufacturers, sees signs of overcoming the long-standing global shortage of semiconductors that has affected companies around the world. This was announced by Karin Radstrom, a member of the board of Daimler Truck, head of the Mercedes-Benz truck division.
Speaking to reporters, he said that the closure of orders after several months of closure due to lack of components allowed factories to remain busy even during the global economic crisis. “It’s better, not perfect, but better than last year. “I try not to celebrate too soon, we are still closely monitoring the situation,” Rodstrom added.
Large truck manufacturers, such as Daimler Truck, were forced to cut production because factories around the world could not provide high-tech components, even as transport demand grew exponentially. Rodstrom’s statement is said to echo the assessment made by Mercedes-Benz AG chief production officer J Բrg Burzer earlier this week. He said that the absence of chips does not lead to a serious cessation of production.
Speaking to reporters, Rodstrom said that despite the growing signs of a slowdown in the global economy, there is still no reason to reduce truck production, and that this sector is sensitive to global downturns. “The demand is still very high in connection with the supply. Despite the changes in the economy, we do not see a decline in demand. “But the situation can change very quickly,” said Rodstrom.
