    Yes. There is a mistake. For one thing, it should say "in transit." But it least that part is clear: the shipment is on the way to the supplier (although a supplier usually provides, rather than receives, a shipment.)

    The problematical part is the first part. What does it mean that the "current manufacture date remain(s)"? And what does this have to do with the fact that it is in transit?

    Something is wrong here.

    Re: sentence

    My guess...

    For below item -> there is a list of items probably computer chips or such

    current manufacture date remain -> the manufacture date predicted for your order remains unchanged

    as wafer shipment still in transit to supplier.- > the reason that the manufacture date remains is that the component "wafer" is still in transit and a timely (on-time) delivery is expected. The supplier can still be the manufacturer being referred to here as long as the writer is acting as a third party.
