Avnet Supply Chain Services and DHL Solutions have announced a joint offering that enables component suppliers and electronics manufacturing services (EMS) providers to integrate global supply chain planning, forecasting and logistics activities into one seamless global operation.

Avnet Supply Chain Services manages the component suppliers' vendor-managed inventory program, working in collaboration with EMS providers and customers, and utilizing the warehousing and delivery infrastructure of DHL Solutions. Via a single point of contact, customers can access DHL capabilities through Avnet and/or access Avnet capabilities through DHL.

For example, Cypress Semiconductor uses Avnet Supply Chain Services to manage requests for vendor-managed inventory services from its EMS customers in Europe. “Our EMS customers increasingly expect us to aggregate and manage the physical inventory flow to their manufacturing sites. Our core competency is in component technology, not supply chain logistics,” explains Bien Irace, vice president, channel sales & marketing for Cypress. “This program allows us to ramp up an integrated, simple, customer-centric service solution quickly without significant capital investment for Cypress.”
