China's impact on global supply chains at the end of the year

2020 and 2021 are the most "extraordinary" two years for our foreign trade people.

At the beginning of 2020, everything in the world came to an abrupt end due to COVID-19.
With the introduction of the vaccine, various countries have gradually lifted their lockdowns, the long-asleep demand has soared, and foreign trade activities have been revitalized as well.

In 2021, the epidemic recurred, the shipping reduced accordingly.
There are also large-scale COVID-19 cases in some countries and ports.
With the container backlogs (New York; California) and shortages (Yantian, Shanghai, Ningbo) frequently occur in Port Cypriot and major ports.
Oncoming are sky-high freight rates and uncertain shipping cycles.
This all affects normal foreign trade activities, but foreign traders can only compromise on all of this.

Moreover, the extreme instability of the supply chain has led to a continuous increase in raw materials (electronic devices such as chips; copper; plastics; petroleum, etc.)
For a time, the dilemma of "it is difficult to buy a chip with money".
The substantial increase in commodity prices, coupled with the exchange rate loss of nearly 10%, are a great challenge for suppliers like us. . .

As our Boss Mr. Tom Hou said: "Crisis, the dangers are also accompanied by opportunities; this is already the worst case,
no matter how bad it is, there will be no bad things, and good opportunities will appear at any time."

Aosion, which has been deeply involved in foreign trade for many years, has accumulated plenty of cash flow.
In the face of “lack of materials and cores”, raw material rises and exchange losses, etc.
In order to support our customers/friends, we only make symbolic adjustments and work with them together to overcome the difficulties.
In that time, we provide sufficient payment support to our source supply chain, purchase important materials in large quantities in advance,
and ensure that the products ordered by our customers are completed and delivered on time and with quality.
At the same time, invest a lot of money in our R&D department, integrate feedback from our customers, develop new products, and apply for patents, etc.
Make full preparations for the next”good turn”.

The extraordinary 2021 is around to pass, and the end of the year is approaching, which also means that China’s traditional festival "Spring Festival" is coming (starting in mid-January 2022)
This time is extremely important for our foreign traders.
Many order requirements are rushed to be delivered before or after the Spring Festival.
Customers generally arrange large-scale order requirements during this time(In fact, some of our customers arranged the required orders two weeks in advance according to our suggestions)
Believe you may also heard about “China’s Dual Control Policy” and the "Spring Festival" holiday.
Which also increases the uncertainty of the delivery period (normally around 25 days, the follow-up may vary from 1 to 3 months)
If there is a demand, it would be better to make an order plan in advance, and we will integrate existing resources and production line scheduling to ensure the delivery of your needs.

"Victory always belongs to those who persist in going through the dark" Believe we can meet the next "good day" together!
