How does the pandemic affect the transportation of PCBs?
Air traffic is still affected by Covid-19, but the major disruptions
we see depends on launches of smartphones and products expected to
black friday. Large volumes of PPE (personal protection equipment) are
still required by the second wave of pandemics that has occurred in Europe.
However, we have recently signed a new agreement on allocated freight, so
that we secure our needs.
PCB Production in China
Our factories in China are still in normal capacity. Both in terms of volumes
and prototype quantities. Which means that we generally see normal delivery times.
At this time of year, planning begins for the Chinese New Year and its
is a good idea to review your needs for the spring already now.
PCB Production in Europe
For prototypes manufactured within the EU and for solder stencils have full capacity
and there is no effect on shipping and turnaround times.
