ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the impact of the shift in vehicle content sourcing on metals suppliers in the U.S. Data released by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration under the American Automobile Labeling Act (AALA) have shown a shift in vehicle content sourcing. The AALA was enacted in 1994 with the purpose of providing consumers with information about a vehicle's content and sourcing to determine the origin of a vehicle and its parts. The AALA percentage content data was applied to CSM Worldwide's production data in order to calculate the volume weighted average domestic content for each manufacturer in North America. The data shows that General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co. and DaimlerChrysler AG have moved away from localized parts sourcing.
