Russian car factories have solved the supply problems from Turkey

Vedomosti – The problems faced in component supplies from Turkey have been tackled, as told by representatives from Renault, Ford Sollers and Volkswagen Group Rus, to Vedomosti newspaper. The Nissan representative has stated that the problem has been solved almost completely. Accordingly, the automotive parts and components from Turkey are being held at the customs for longer times than usual. Toyota representative says that everything is back to normal. The representative from the Federal Customs Service (FTS) has confirmed these statements.

As one may remember, production has almost come to a halt in some automotive and machinery plants, following the seizure of parts and components imported from Turkey in Russian customs.

However, a factory representative highlights the delays during the customs clearance processes of components used in car services. The representatives from Russian Union of Car Dealers do not expect any problems, thanks to the sufficient component stocks in warehouses.

On the other hand, despite the fact that the problems in component supplies from Turkey have been solved, the factories are in search of new suppliers, according to rumours. A source from AVTOVAZ states that more than a year is needed, in order to procure the aforementioned components domestically. The period is between one and three months, in case the supplier is situated abroad. The suppliers manufacturing in Russia are dealing with the case at the moment. For instance, Pirelli -who manufactures tyres with Rosteh in Russia- imports metal and textile wires from Turkey. The company is on the lookout for new suppliers according to news, despite experiencing no supply problems up to today.
