IT supply chain: Backlog of demand for PCs highest ever; higher IT prices impacted by logistics and transportation


The prospect of a no-deal Brexit loomed large over the UK economy in November as the EU and UK struggled to finalise terms. One of the biggest hurdles looks likely to be delays at ports, which will impact product delivery and higher prices due to weaker exchange rates. Adding to this volatility was a strain on logistics and transportation, largely driven by consumer spending in the run-up to Christmas.

This pressure means we may see further delays and price hiking as demand for key lines remains high, reports Ian Nethercot, MCIPS, Supply Chain Director at Probrand.
