Ford cuts Fiesta shifts as export orders drop

FORD is cutting Fiesta production at its Dagenham plant by axing two shifts for seven weeks from October 1. This will reduce production of Fiesta cars and vans by 20%, in a bid to realign supply with falling demand in export markets.

The shifts affected are those on Thursday night and Friday day, but the 4,500-strong workforce will still be expected to report to the plant for training.
