We advise that you plan your China PCB supply early this year.
As you may be aware, couriers across the world have been under pressure to meet demand following Covid restrictions.
Our offshore factory is operating as normal and there are no delays to manufacturing lead times. However there are new restrictions from courier companies across the globe which limit the amount of boards that can be shipped each day.
We have established relationships with extra courier companies (namely DHL and TNT) to ensure as many of your orders get despatched as a priority. We have also taken the decision to increase capacity across our offshore factory with the aim of completing manufacturing lead times faster, which in turn should soften any courier delays.
With this in mind, we would like to bring your attention to the upcoming Chinese New Year shutdown. Although it may seem early to start planning January, February and March PCB requirements, we would like to advise customers to prepare earlier this year, especially on the eve of another lockdown in the UK. This will ensure the continuity of your PCB supply across the coming months.
We would be delighted to accept scheduled orders now for delivery over January, February and March next year.
If you would like to discuss your PCB deliveries with our sales team, please don’t hesitate to get in touch here.
