Michelin has announced that it will halt production at some of its European plants due to significant supply-chain issues caused by Russia's war in Ukraine.

The company stated that it will halt production at some factories for a few days in the coming weeks in order to optimise and adapt operations.

"Michelin is analyzing in real time the sanctions that the international community implemented and is already complying with those in effect," it said.

"Because of the current crisis, and like many industrial players in Europe, the Michelin Group is also facing major logistical and transportation issues in supplying its plants and delivering to customers," the French tire maker said.

The tyre company is the latest to report supply-chain disruptions or production halts as a result of Russia's war in Ukraine, as suppliers close local factories and sanctions and disrupted trade routes affect shipments.
