06 Sourcing & Importing

Once you have your Drawings & Specifications sorted, if not we can assist you with them, we can then save you time, effort and reduce your stress by letting you focus on your day-to-day, whilst we efficiently work with our supplier and manufacturer network or find you an alternative one if need be that can get you innovation ready for market at an affordable price.

Our continued experience of working in the Asian and Non-Asian markets will bring you quality, cost and process efficiency, confidence and increased productivity through our intimate understanding of different languages, culture and the many and varied nuances that need to be navigated to get your production or supplies to you as you specified.

Assisted Buying & Sourcing in China

Like any area of business there are lessons to be learned, often the hard way, when it comes to purchasing goods overseas. Our assisted buying service will help you find a supplier of goods, or we can work with a supplier that you have found online through an aggregator of suppliers and or manufacturer, to save you time and money, reduce your hassle and worry, because we manage this on daily basis.

An overseas supplier often does not understand local standards and safety requirements for products, nor are they aware of all the miscellaneous local port and shipping charges associated with processing and importing your shipment. Further, the overall process of sourcing often customised goods brings more layers of complexity than just buying an existing product overseas. It is important to use clear communication, well documented specifications coupled with a methodical attention to detail.

To save you from some of this grief, we can:

  • Help you find a supplier, or we can work with one that you have found
  • Carryout background checks
  • Negotiate and communicate with the supplier in their language
  • Book the international freight
  • Add in quality control checks
  • Take care of all the fiddly details of customs clearance, foreign currency exchange & importing
  • Arrange local delivery of the goods to your door
