Leading foreign passenger vehicle automakers that produce and export from Russia have been greatly impacted by the Russia/Ukraine conflict, which began 24 February 2022.

This has highlighted the urgent need for strategies that can contain immediate to short-term production disruptions and effectively balance demand and supply dynamics.
