Creating value for the Technology & Electronics industry

Industry overview

Both the Technology and the Electronics industry face a wave of turbulence as we move further into 2020, because COVID-19 can disrupt manufacturing processes and force businesses to move production facilities to non-tariff bound locations.

And that's just one example of the challenges that we need to face.

When it comes to shipping electronics, at Maersk, we’re here to help you enjoy stability in volatile times and gain the advantage of our global logistics network to take care of the rest.

Our push-driven logistics practices – such as remote assembly, supply chain outsourcing and 3PL engagement – are fit-for-purpose and designed to keep your products freely available and competitively priced.

We believe the following trends will help you ride this wave and stay ahead of the curve:

Emerging

Capitalising on opportunities in emerging markets

  • In the next two decades, around three billion new customers will enter the middle-class, most of whom will be from emerging markets.
  • Their consumption of technology is estimated to increase by $14 billion; this is a huge opportunity but also one that demands preparation.
Customer experience

Changing sourcing patterns to decrease lead times and enhance the customer experience

  • The global marketplace, alongside demand patterns, are constantly changing. With products hitting the market faster, long lead times are hampering business opportunities and profits.
Thumb

Building up customer-centric supply chains with instant feedback

  • 81% of companies with excellent customer service enjoy a competitive advantage. To follow suit, enable an easy returns process and adopt the policies, technologies and processes to support this.
economy

Getting smarter connections

  • The Big Data age has created technologies that enable virtualisation of the supply chain, turning information into insights. This means that logistics processes and technologies will get smarter.
  • Today, manufacturers are focusing on building a more resilient integrated supply chain plan.

On time. Every time.

For Technology and Electronics, it's key that products reach their destination on time and as planned as missing a season can deem the products near obsolete. Discover how we worked with our customer - a world-leader in the computer, communications, and consumer electronics - to resolve supply chain delay, which was mainly caused by exception management.
