The Tough Road Ahead for iTruColor Returning Back to WorkRecently, iTruColor received many new customer inquiries about the iPhone lcd screen on our website backstage, mainly because some of their old suppliers are unable to supply, or quality problems occurred.
Affected by the epidemic, the entire spare parts industry has experienced a serious shortage of supply, and this situation is expected to continue for a long time. Many customers may still not fully understand the current situation faced by Chinese companies now.
Due to the impact of the epidemic COVID-19(NCP), the Chinese government has adopted a series of measures to postpone the resumption of work and avoid the spread of immunization. Now, if there are Chinese suppliers in stock and they can ship quickly, they have sufficient strength and are highly responsible to customers. Why do we say that?
1. How difficult if we want to return to work?
The first step is to report and send employees to participate in the training organized by the government "how to start and prepare." Then the government will disinfect and monitor the factory environment. And last you must submit a lot of documents and application materials as below:
A: Application Form for Returning to Work
B: Commitment to Prevent and Control Epidemics of Resumed Enterprises
C: Corporate Prevention and Control Team
D: Employee temperature check record
E: Protective equipment issuance registration form
F: Protective Equipment Stock List
G-1: Personnel Information Sheet
G-2: List of moved people
H: Whole factory checklist
I: Signing of level-by-level responsibility letter
J: Enterprise response plan
K: Training files for all staff resuming work
L: Safety Workshop
According to reports, the Shenzhen Municipal Government's approval rate for resumption of work is only 0.2%, and only ITRUCOLOR and SGS (the world's top 500 testing companies) are the first batch of resumed enterprises approved by the government in the same zone.
2. Lack of Workers:
Even though it was difficult to pass the audit, the workers were a big problem and the factory faced the dilemma of unmanned production. Many workers are trapped in their hometowns and are unable to return to the factory on time.
Even if some workers have already returned to Shenzhen, they will not be able to start work immediately. According to the government's requirements, workers returning from the field will be quarantined for 14 days. Then, after getting approved, if a worker is found to have fever during work, regardless of whether the diagnosis is confirmed, the factory will be shut down and everyone will be isolated for 14 days.
So this is why ITRUCOLOR has made so many efforts to achieve the resumption of work for some employees. As far as we know, except for ITRUCOLOR, the entire industry has not resumed work, and basically works online at home.
3. Supply chain:
Under the trend of economic globalization, China's manufacturing industry is now completely an ecologically integrated relationship between supply chain and industrial chain deep cooperation.
A commodity as small as a pencil cannot be completed independently. Every link in the entire supply chain is interlocked. It is useless to start any one of the factories. Instead, multiple partners in the entire supply chain are required to work together, so that the final product can be supplied.
At present, all raw materials and accessories: all the glass, IC chip, auxiliary materials factory, packaging factory. These factories are not started, so many orders that require assembly are also difficult to meet.
According to our expectations, even if some companies with inventory and a small number of raw material factories resume work, they can only alleviate part of the demand, and the situation of oversupply will continue.
How long this time will take is difficult to predict for the time being. For customers who have purchasing plans in the near future, it is better to place an order as soon as possible, because now iTruColor's inventory is limited.
4. Inventory(That now we ship to customers):
The goods that can be delivered to customers now are the stock made before CNY(Chinese New Year). The amount of inventory requires strong funds to support, it is also a dual reflection of the strength of the company and its ability to resist risks.
Even if the order volume exceeded estimates many years ago, ITruColor still has some stocks of various models of different quality, and has been shipping one after another since the start of construction on 2-10. And this is still hard to reach for some middle trading companies and small factories.
We have below suggestion to our customers before the supply chain recovered:
1. Pay with caution --- Don't rush to pay because of the urgency, it is the most important thing to ensure that your supplier can ship, otherwise the money is paid, the goods are not received late, and there is no funds to Find another supplier to place an order. Delays in delivery lead to loss of reputation and loss of customers.
2. Check the inventory --- Make sure that it is available from stock through online videos, pictures, videos, etc. of factory resumption.
3. Divided orders --- Find more companies to place separate orders to spread the risk.
Finally, thank you to all the customers who have always trusted in ITRUCOLOR. In this difficult period, we will, as always, try our best to supply customers with actual needs. At present, we still have some iPhone lcd screen models in stock, and will be temporarily suspended after the sale.
