Consumer electronics

For businesses in the hi-tech and consumer electronics industries, constant innovations and disruptions can bring complications, as well as opportunities.   When you resolve those complications and act on the opportunities — through being first to market, product customization and intelligently managing inventory — you can please consumers and earn their loyalty.   An expertly managed electronics supply chain can help you reach these goals.

Horizon has significant experience and reputation in the electronics sector, having serviced some of the world’s leading brands for nearly 30 years both locally and globally.

We have teams deployed at manufacturing plants across Europe to work with customers at the initial stages of building electronics supply chain management solutions through to facilitating final delivery to our customer – or frequently to our customer’s customer thus extending the supply chain further.

Product proliferation is key to this sector and this brings specific challenges in terms of a multi-modal approach to global movements.  Supply chain management solutions need to cater for new product release and seasonal sales peaks, while precise packaging specifications are critical to optimising transport costs and container utilisation.

Inventory management and cost reduction are also key drivers that international freight forwarders and container shipping companies need to consider and act upon in this very competitive marketplace.  Horizon therefore works closely with customers to identify ways of reducing stock holdings and improving cash flow. We will implement and adapt our IT systems for specific requirements and through comprehensive transportation forecasting will initiate reliable and predictable shipping schedules to ensure totally effective supply chain planning.
