Ford Idles Three Light Truck Plants

The automaker said its Oakville Assembly Plant in Canada, as well as Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri, will be down the week of Aug. 30. Ford’s Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan will operate just one shift.

Ford has been hit especially hard by the chip crisis, although the company plans to work through “most” of some 60,000 to 70,000 unfinished vehicles that are sitting in lots around assembly plants by the end of the third quarter.
