Shafiq Ahmed Sheikh attributed the price adjustments to inflation, increased overhead expenses, rising international raw material and accessories costs, as well as escalated shipment and freight expenses. He highlighted the Red Sea issue as a critical factor beyond the company’s control, leading to substantial increases in freight costs. However, there’s uncertainty regarding the duration of this challenge.

In response to these challenges, Shafiq Ahmed Sheikh mentioned that Pak Suzuki is compelled to transfer only a minimal portion of the adverse impact through price increases on select products. Nevertheless, the company intends to absorb the major portion of the increased burden.
