Wonder how much of the supply chain issues were and are caused by semi trucker blockades

Links below are just a few that touches on that topic...

Canada Protests: A New Blockade Threatens Supply Chain for Carmakers


The ‘Freedom Convoy’ trucker protests ha........ need to know Published Thu, Feb 17 2022




Plus wonder if the DC blockade will exacerbate the Supply Chain issue(s)...and...news articles says many RVers are joining in that blockade...but it didn't happen and guessing LEO's figured a way to foil them

Vehicle shortage issues started way before the trucker protests. I ordered a Ford Transit Van for work over a year ago and still don't know when it will arrive.

The DC truck protest won't help the supply chain crisis, of course, but out of a couple million trucks on the road nationwide, one or two thousand trucks in a convoy in DC aren't going to really affect it much either.

This isn't a new issue and it's a problem for pretty much all of the brand. I ordered my 2021 F150 on Dec 2nd 2020 and took delivery mid July 2021!

Blueovalforums dot com has a 300 page thread on people waiting for superdutys.

MFG are having problem getting parts, and suppliers are having an additional problem getting employees.

Compounded with shipping delays, both overseas and domestic.

I manage prototype product builds at an OEM. It used to be, I could have a box shipped overseas in literally a day. Pulling out all the stops now, an emergency shipment can take a week or longer. Sending stuff to and from Europe without priority, expect 2 weeks for Europe, 4 weeks for China

I'll add one more caveat, Ford dealers have access to current restrictions to build, and the list keeps getting longer. Adaptive steering was the first one to show up. I deleted that from my build. Apparently spray liner, 5th wheel pucks, and some others are showing up for retail orders. They are not available at all for dealer stock orders.

As of now, ordering a new Superduty you will have limited options available no matter what trim level you order. Upfitter switches, adaptive steering, adaptive cruise, engine block heater, 5th wheel prep, rapid heat are just some of the options not available to order now. They have even taken them off of the build your own site.

OP here. Guess I just needed to complain a little [emoticon] I got a call this morning from the dealership and am picking up my 2022 F350 this afternoon; a week over 4 months from when we ordered it.

Ford has decided to sell and ship vehicles without the chips that power non-safety features. The automaker will instead send the chips a year later to the dealers for installation after a vehicle is purchased

Back in 2001 when all was normal I waited three months. Four does not seem bad at all. Shipping delay was probably just lack of updating the progress.
Enjoy the new truck! Post a pic or it did not happen [emoticon]
