F-Series Production Halt in May Hurt Ford’s Profits in Q2 2018

Earlier, we discussed how Ford Motor Company’s (F) lower wholesale volumes affected its North American revenue in the second quarter. Ford’s EBIT margin in the region contracted significantly to 7.4% in the second quarter, lower than its level of 7.8% in the first quarter and much worse than its level of 9.5% in the second quarter of 2017. This supply disruption mainly affected its F-Series pickup truck production.
