"With the
increased fragmentation and complexity in bringing innovative, technology-laden
products to reality, companies are increasingly looking for experienced partners
that can simplify go-to-market processes," said Grace Dong, Senior Director, Sales
and Supplier Management at
Avnet China. "Avnet is honored for the consecutive recognition of our
world-class supply chain capabilities. Together with our logistics network, design
chain experience, technical capabilities, and end-to-end ecosystem, we continue
to help customers navigate the challenging IoT industry with our product
development proficiencies."

Over the past year, Avnet has continually
enhanced its capabilities and offerings to bring greater
ease and convenience to its
global customers and partners. In September 2019, Avnet expanded its e-commerce
strategy in China through an alliance with Alibaba, where users can access the Avnet Super Store on 1688.com, China's largest wholesale e-commerce platform for
industrial products and components for easy-access to feature-rich components
that are crucial to building innovative IoT products.

Avnet has strengthened its portfolio
of IoT solutions for its customers and partners. Its
acquisition of Softweb Solutions integrated Softweb's formidable IoT and data platforms, expertise in AI, data
advisory and digital development services, with Avnet's end-to-end hardware 'design to deploy' ecosystem.

The Top 10 International Branded
Distributor award was given to Avnet at the Global Distribution & Supply
