Managing Supply Chain Disruptions – How Sure Controls E-store and Repair Service Can Help
The global supply-chain problems have been grabbing a lot of headlines lately, and for good reason. Part shortages and surging prices are threatening the economic recovery. While Western economies have largely moved past shutdowns and other pandemic-related restrictions, many Asian countries are still experiencing lockdowns. As a result, they can’t meet the demand for products and raw materials. Manufacturers are realizing that what used to take a couple weeks to get now can take several months. And, the old pricing no longer applies. Many suppliers are notifying their customers of double-digit percentage increases.
As manufacturers struggle to navigate the supply-chain disruption, holding safety stock or intermediate inventory has become standard practice. And, identifying other opportunities to procure much needed parts is also hugely beneficial.
