Distributors strengthen supply chains – 5 reasons why

Distributors such as Astute Electronics play a critical role in the electronics supply chain, says a new article from Source Today.

“In the world of the supply chain, an electronic components distributor plays a significant role in providing industrial and commercial businesses with the parts they need,” reports the article.

Much more than just ‘middlemen’, distributors provide value-added services, technical expertise and customer support that manufacturers would otherwise have to orchestrate themselves – if at all, and particularly in the case of value-added services.

The article goes on to list five important advantages of working with distributors.

  1. You can purchase in smaller quantities to avoid minimum order quantities.
  2. Reduce your inventory, as distributors can perform bulk purchasing.
  3. Get product support so you make wise purchases about the right electronic component.
  4. Leverage experienced team members who can help you find, select and procure parts.
  5. Lower shipping costs.
