The Top 4 Benefits of Working with China-based Sourcing Agents

Being a business owner is stressful enough without having to spend valuable time wondering if your products are being managed the way you would like. Once you are ready to have your products manufactured, you should be able to focus on marketing, branding and the other tasks that come along with selling, which is why being able to outsource some of your duties can be helpful and necessary. One way to ease some of the stress is by working with a China-based sourcing agent. These local agents are available to represent the best interests of your production line to make certain your products are exactly what you need.

Here are four benefits of working with sourcing agents in China.

  1. The Price is Right

Not only is using sourcing agents in China less expensive than in the West, a China-based agent is also a knowledgeable resource for identifying the most cost effective and high quality suppliers. When deciding on a manufacturer or supplier, having a site visit is always a good idea. It is important to make sure the facility is clean, the equipment is in working order, and the labor is available to complete your work. Having an agent on the ground allows you to have a complete picture and assurances without having to make expensive and time consuming trips to the factory.

  1. For the Newbies

If you are new to business or new to selling products, you may have great ideas for the items you want to sell; however, you may not be an expert on the key details that could make or break your success. Costs of importing, exporting, shipping times, quantity orders…these are just a few examples of the considerations that need to be accounted for when sourcing and manufacturing overseas. A local agent is not only experienced in collaborating with local suppliers, but they are also experienced working with global clients and can be great assets to identifying your unique requirements.

  1. Bridging the Gap
    1. When you work with an agent based in China, you will not have to worry about communication gaps that language and culture barriers can create. Being able to communicate quickly and easily could mean the difference between the success and failure of your products. An agent in China is also aware of facility schedules, holidays, and delays due to weather or local health concerns. This may seem unimportant but being able to plan for delays can help you create a timely go-to-market strategy for your goods. Also, some suppliers are reluctant to collaborate with buyers who are not local. An agent in China can be your representative so that transactions go smoothly, and production is sensible.
  2. Quality control
    1. Not only is it important to have “boots on the ground” when it comes to acquiring the best supplier for your goods, but it is also imperative to have excellent quality control. Since you can’t be at the facility each and every day guaranteeing that your products are being developed to your specifications, working with a China-based agent allows you to put in place important safeguards for your product. Without this, you could spend countless hours and funds between shipping and correcting your orders instead of getting the items ready to sell.
