Daimler Hit by Chip Shortage
Daimler will put up to 18,500 Mercedes-Benz workers in Germany on short-time work due to a global shortage of chips. Plants in Bremen and Rastatt will be affected, the company said on Wednesday.
“Currently, there is a worldwide supply shortage of certain semiconductor components,” said a spokeswoman. “We continue to play things by ear. The situation is volatile, so it is not possible to make a forecast about the impact.”
