For the past two years, Ford has managed supply-chain struggles affecting vehicle manufacturing capacity, including RV chassis. Ford on Thursday said it will restructure its global supply chain.

The supply chain restructuring aims to “support efficient and reliable sourcing of components, internal development of key technologies and capabilities and world-class cost and quality execution,” Ford said in a release.

Chief Financial Officer John Lawler will lead the manufacturer’s global supply chain organization for the interim until a chief supply chain officer is selected.

Jonathan Jennings, vice president, supply chain, will take additional responsibility for supplier technical assistance and quality. He will report to Lawler.

On Monday, Ford said supplier negotiations resulted in $1 billion more in inflation-related third-quarter costs than previously expected.
