European, US manufacturers shut down as China comes back online

Factory shutdowns will quickly ripple through the supply chain to impact the suppliers, logistics partners and other businesses that work with manufacturers on a regular basis, especially for just-in-time manufacturing operations like automotive supply chains.

“In the automotive sector, planned factory shutdowns for two weeks have already caused similar production halts at supplier levels as well, in particular at Tier-1 levels,” Mirko Woitzik, the manager of EMEA risk intelligence at Resilience360, told Supply Chain Dive in an email. “This could then lead to temporary layoffs or even insolvency.”
