Key Tips on Keeping up with Component Supply by GD Rectifiers
GD Rectifiers share their top five tips to avoiding shortages in your supply chain
By: GD Rectifiers
Keep a close eye on lead times
The electronic component industry is still facing long lead times for certain products used for electric vehicles. Some manufacturers are still trying to catch up with the increased demand for components that we've seen in the last few years and are still quoting up to 26 week lead times.
Try to use suppliers with UK stock
The advantage of using suppliers with UK stock is that it is always accessible, regardless of the latest COVID-19 update. Customers that use suppliers with UK stock will avoid any unnecessary delays with customs or delivery issues with their components.
Lookout for component stock lists
Distributor stock lists are a quick way to establish if a component is in stock and most lists are available online, making it easier than ever to source the components you need. The electronics industry is always experiencing component shortages, but it's the way distributors and customers work together that helps solve any potential supply chain issues.
