Supply Chain Challenges

The pace of change in consumer electronics and high tech requires sophisticated supply chain design that can be planned and executed on a global basis.  

Short product life cycles, seasonally weighted demand and multiple product variations place a high importance on planning and the ability to build agility in these supply chains.

  • Impact of trade and tariffs on global manufacturing and distribution

  • Integrated digital / physical supply chains for connected products

  • Multiple product variations in products with short lifecycle

  • Increased focus on sustainability and circular economy principles

  • Supply chain execution via network of EMS, Logistics and Repair partners

  • Shift across retail, marketplace and eCommerce channels
