Ford’s latest supply chain problem: lack of blue oval badges
Ford Motor Co. has delayed deliveries of certain vehicles because they did not have the blue oval badges on them, in another example of how supply chain challenges have hit automakers.
The automaker has run into supply constraints with the decals and nameplates that specify the model, according to people familiar with the matter. Both parts are attached to the vehicle’s exterior and are important identifiers for the car manufacturer’s products. A spokesman for the company confirmed that it has held some vehicle shipments due to a lack of badges.
