The nation is currently experiencing a global shortage of semiconductor chips. With advances in technology, most modern vehicles rely on these chips for onboard computer systems. These chips, used for everything from consumer to automotive technology, help deliver improved driving experiences. This shortage is impacting both consumers and fleets alike, causing a decreased supply of available work vehicles.

Due to the pandemic, manufacturers of these chips pivoted to producing the parts for consumer goods, such as laptops, computers, and phones, as more people began working from home. With businesses opening back up, the demand for automotive vehicles has gone back up, and manufacturers are now struggling to meet the rising demand. All major automotive manufacturers are cutting off the number of orders placed for the model 2021 year of vehicles. Some projections estimate that the shortage may continue through Q3 and Q4 of this year.
