As the impact of the industry-wide microchip shortage continues, Geotab has informed us that it will also have an impact on the availability of telematics devices.

 

Geotab sent an email to all resellers, including Element, letting us know that the impact of the chip shortage is impacting them this quarter, however, they are taking steps to mitigate this and are going to enormous lengths to secure the necessary components to increase future supply. Geotab expects the availability of GO devices to improve significantly next quarter.

 

The lead time for shipping telematics devices has increased from the usual 10 - 14 days to a minimum of 60 days.

 

Geotab is ensuring orders that are placed are needed immediately and will be installed within thirty days of being shipped. This will avoid orders being placed for inventory and make sure the devices available are aligned to immediate customer needs. As a result, they will be asking Element for installation / deployment schedules with telematics device orders.

 

In addition, accurate forecasting of future need for devices will become more important. We ask that you alert your Telematics representative or FPS Partner of your Geotab device needs for the remainder of 2021.
