2020 has been unprecedented in terms of supply chain disruption – a global pandemic has led to a global lockdown and only now are we seeing an easing of restrictions in the UK. As the automotive sector begins to ramp up production, leaders in the industry are faced with a number of unprecedented challenges – operating an automotive workplace whilst observing social distancing measures and safe working practices, disruption to international supply chains and suppliers at varying levels of readiness to restart production.
