Toyota, the Japanese auto giant, halts production at all of its plants due to a computer glitch. The 28 production lines of its 14 factories have been blocked, due to a failure in parts orders.
Toyota suspends the manufacture of its vehicles in all its plants in Japan. Its 28 production lines spread over the 14 factories it has at the domestic level have been blocked. A computer system failure has paralyzed the country’s largest car manufacturer.
According to a company spokesperson, the error affects orders for parts and initially it is not a cyberattack.
“This is a system failure that prevents parts orders. We do not know when it will be possible to recover, but we are trying to resume operations,” a company spokesperson told EFE.
The group is still investigating the causes and at the moment does not know when it will operate again. The company’s shares began to fall after the news.
The shares of Toyota Motor, which opened positively on Tuesday on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, reached the mid-session break with a decrease of 0.38% after the news was released.
Today’s suspension comes after the company had to halt production at all its domestic factories last March following a cyberattack on one of its suppliers that affected its ordering platform.
That incident also led Toyota to suspend all operations at its 14 production plants, including those of its Hino and Daihatsu brands, which meant a drop in expected production of 13,000 units, around 5% of its monthly volume. .
The Japanese authorities analyzed the case to determine its origin, which occurred shortly after several countries warned of the possibility that Russia carried out attacks of this type on targets of countries that have supported the sanctions against them for the invasion of Ukraine.
