Alternative Sourcing Strategies Help Maintain Steady Supply Chains during COVID-19 Crisis

Several number of companies are restarting their operations since the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly subsided with the beginning of 2021. China, being the manufacturing hub for automobiles, is dictating the global automotive market in terms of demand and supply. Shortages of supplies from China have led to a domino effect around the world. Hence, companies in the automotive suspension spring market are focusing on supplying critical components to support manufacturers. They should consider adopting alternative sourcing strategies to maintain steady international supply chains.

Apart from identifying alternate suppliers, companies in the automotive suspension spring market should take into account the potential tax and tariff implications of suppliers. This involves customs, duties, and transfer pricing considerations, if the substitute components are internally sourced. As a response to the coronavirus pandemic, manufacturers are improving supply chain visibility and lines of communication to assess potential problems early on.
