Honda To Resume Full Production Operations At UK Car Plant

Honda says its British car plant will restart production on Monday after problems importing parts had halted output since Wednesday.

The Japanese company said in a statement on Sunday it had told staff at its Swindon plant “full production operations will resume in all areas”.

Congestion at UK ports and delays in the arrival of ships disrupted Honda’s “just-in-time” production schedules.

A number of companies have reported congestion at ports increasing.

The issue at ports has been building in recent weeks, with problems initially at Felixstowe, but recently at Southampton and London Gateway as well.

The backlog has built up as companies increased orders after the initial coronavirus lockdown, while others have looked to stockpile goods before the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December.
