1)   Review your requirements and forecast where possible

Customers that provide component forecasts are least likely to experience delays in component sourcing. Forecasts help streamline the sourcing process and enables both the customer and distributor to plan ahead, secure the best possible pricing from the factory and eliminate long lead times.


2)   Consider accepting higher rated parts

Customers can bypass long lead times by accepting higher rated devices that are mechanically interchangeable in lieu of the part numbers required. Partner with your distributor to find out which parts they have in stock suitable for your application.


3)   Work closely with your distributor to set up call-off and scheduled orders

GD Rectifiers offers a number of flexible purchasing solutions, place a scheduled order to enjoy competitive, fixed pricing for up to 12 months. Our call-off orders provide maximum flexibility for when you need it most, we’ll stock the components in our warehouse until you need them.


4)   Leverage existing orders and requirements

Our dedicated sales team provide pioneering customer service and expert technical support, they work with customers to place repeat orders, receive non-stocked items on short lead times and design customised products suited to your applications.


5)   Consider smart ordering

Our sales team notify customers when call-off or scheduled orders are running low, giving them the opportunity to reorder, to help minimise unnecessary delays. We also welcome the opportunity to put in place smart ordering for customers, for frequently required parts simply tell us when you would like to put in a reorder and we’ll process the request for you.
