USMCA takes center stage

While the automotive world's attention was drawn to the flying cars and self-driving buses on display at the Paris Motor Show, perhaps more significant events were unfolding back across the pond (and it's not Elon Musk's Twitter account this time).

The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement ended weeks of uncertainty surrounding trade within North America. The updated NAFTA accord will have a wide-ranging impact on companies across myriad industries, none more so than carmakers.

All international car manufacturers with activities on the continent will have to reassess their supply chains and, potentially, absorb higher labor costs if they are to avoid hefty tariffs. Our analysis, which includes shipping data from Panjiva, shows that Germany's Daimler AG and Japan-based Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. stand to be particularly affected by higher requirements for content produced in North America. U.S. automakers such as Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Co., meanwhile, are waiting for the dust to settle to see if the deal President Donald Trump has struck is quite as good as he claims.
