Each day brings new reports of the devastating impact of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. As I arrived at Soundview’s offices this morning, I heard a report about one consumer aspect that tells us just how intense the circumstances are in Japan. Auto sales for the month of March in Japan are down 37 percent. This is due in large part to the sudden closure of many of Japan’s auto manufacturing plants. The supply chain has been compromised to a large degree, as the shutdown of a single parts-producer can impact multiple manufacturers.
It’s been a difficult time in the auto sales business in many parts of the world. If falling sales numbers have you concerned, you might want to check out the latest edition of CKC’s Executive Edge, the online publication produced by Soundview’s parent company Concentrated Knowledge Corporation.
