Apple, Dell & Other Laptop Makers May Face Shipment Delays Amid China Lockdown – $AAPL $DELL $DIA

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, shipments of some Apple (AAPL) products, as well as Dell and Lenovo laptops are likely to face delays if China’s COVID-19 lockdowns persist, analysts predict. China’s attempt to stop the spread of COVID-19 has jammed highways and ports, stranded workers, and left countless factories awaiting government approval to reopen leading to disruptions that are intensifying the global supply chains.

Apple Inc. supplier Pegatron Corp informed it would suspend its plants in Shanghai and Kunshan, where reportedly it produces the iPhone 13, the iPhone SE series, and other legacy models. Quanta Computer Inc, which produces some three-quarters of Apple’s Macbooks globally, also shut operations, which could impact delivery more severely, informed analysts. However, the final impact on Apple’s supply chain is uncertain and depends on factors including how long lockdowns persist. The iPhone maker may also consider re-routing production out of Shanghai and Kunshan to factories elsewhere, such as Shenzhen, which currently is not under lockdown, analysts informed.

“Apple may consider transferring the orders from Pegatron to Foxconn, but we expect the volume may be limited due to the logistics issue and the difficulty of equipment adjustment,” stated Taipei-based Eddie Han, a senior analyst at Isaiah Research.
