Independant Distributor vs Brokers: there IS a difference

NO RATINGS

When sourcing through your normal supply chain partners (Franchise Distribution) finds that one or several part numbers are obsolete / out of stock / or showing unacceptable lead times, the savy buyer will look to the independant disributor as a tool to help fill the void.

As an independant disty, we are not bound by manufacturer contractual buying guidlines, and can often offer alternative supply options from our own stock, or that of the network we work within. This is not to be confused with the often il-conceived "broker" that has no stock, and no buying agreements with part manufacturers and is nothing more than a glorified middleman.

As an independant distributor, We can offer several advantages to the supply chain management such as: Bonded Inventory, Scheduled Shipments and Cost Savings analysis on current BOMs that the "broker" can't.

For more information on these advantages, contact me @ santek components.
