TD Synnex CEO: Tech Data, Synnex Integration Lays Ground For Growth

‘I would expect that the experiences around our cloud platforms, the experiences around our as-a-service capabilities, the experiences around the depth of the portfolio, will provide a better experience versus if we had gone on our own for our major stakeholders,’ says TD Synnex CEO Rich Hume.

Are you expecting things to get looser or tighter going forward?

We obviously have a reliance upon the vendor views of that because they’re the ones that are in charge of the supply. What I would say anecdotally is, the view is that things will begin to ease as we move through time, but most would say that the constraints will be there for the first half of the year. And some would even say that there’ll be some categories that [will be constrained] going to the second half of next year. So I think probably a pretty good general statement is that constraints are expected to continue in the first half and potentially go into the second half of next year.

And how much that constraint comes from the clogged ports and other transportation issues vs. manufacturing side issues?

As an anecdotal generalization, we hear there are constraints in chips. We hear there are constraints relative to shipping and things getting caught in ports. We hear that there are constraints even in some other commodities, plastics, et cetera. So right now it’s I think a bit broad-based. I wouldn’t be able to kind of say this one’s greater than this one. I think we all experience even in our personal lives the constraints in other industries, furniture or clothing or whatever else. This is, I think, fairly broad-based. But my speculation is that as COVID stabilizes, which the current phase now seems to be stabilizing globally, that will give more of an opportunity to gain on the issue. And the other thing that I would say is that as a world, as we go through phases of COVID, I think the productivity swings are not as great as they were early on because we know how to live and adapt. So my crystal ball would say that the anecdotal view of our vendors saying continued constraint in the first half [of next year] with relief in the second half is probably the best estimate right now.
