As an electronics distributor you are facing a number of challenges:
Customers expect products to be delivered at unprecedented speed and accuracy, pushing the limits of current fulfillment models and driving up costs.
Customers often order the same part from multiple distributors, resulting in a high percentage of returns and exacerbating issues with parts availability and lead times.
Changes in order profiles and order sizes are impacting operations.
Electronic distributors struggle with SKU proliferation as new products are developed, while older ones still need to be supported. Distribution centers are reaching their limits with hundreds of thousands of parts in inventory.
Concerns over possible geopolitical and economic disruption, including changing trade agreements, have made the future uncertain. Some companies are pausing their investments while others are investing in initiatives to make them more flexible and resilient.
You need a partner to help navigate these changes and their impacts on the supply chain. Fortna can help.
