Taking into account that yesterday was a holiday and the same will happen next Thursday and Friday, these terminals They will not have activity throughout the week.

In the first factory that this decision was made was in the Santa Isabel, in Córdoba, where vehicles for Renault and Nissan are produced. The staff had been informed of the cessation of activity 10 days ago. In this case, the measure is related to the adaptation of production to the current level of demand.
