Sourcing for Australia in China
Product sourcing is an integeral part of LogoPromo. We have been working with Australian companies and China Factories for over 15 years. Understanding China is a pivotal part of our work processes, in knowing which factories or trading companies to work with. Dealing direct with factories to achieve greater saving for our client while producing quality product.
Our key focus is to ensure that the sourcing process, manufacturing, and delivery of the goods is as efficient as possible. All this with the right price, quality and lead time.
Product Creation Process
The first step is to get an overview of your requirements and expectations. What do you want to produce and what quantity? How will the product be used? What is the expected standard and quality? What previous issues have you faced?
You receive a quote where we will also discuss potential issues and risks. We will explain dimension deviations, finish limitations/implications, domestic material equivalent alternatives, etc
Once the factory is approved, we do a sample production. We review key points with supplier such as appearance, critical dimensions, critical areas and performance. We inspect the sample, confirm process/material is the same as expected on mass production and we will then send you the sample and a detailed report.
Before production starts we repeat review process with the supplier and emphasize and ensure improvements made during sampling are implemented. Production begins, and we do in-process inspections such as; Process flow lead-times, Raw Material acquisition, and Process stages/steps. Once production is finished, we do additional inspections such as; Packaging/Secure transit, Critical dimensions/specifications and Shipping Marks.
We will communicate with freight forwarder to arrange pickup and delivery. We will manage customs documentation including HS Codes/Tariffs and certificates. As soon as the pickup is done we monitor tracking information, customs clearance and schedule delivery to your desired location.
Time Consuming – Managing factory relationships can be time consuming. The time spent managing your supply chain could be better spent on the sales and marketing for your product. Language barriers – your chosen factory may or may not have a good grasp of your local language, meaning key commercial and technical points may be misunderstood by either party uncertainty over product quality
Our team will discuss the appropriate freight service to select for your order.
This is the cheapest but also the slowest shipping method. It can take 25 – 40 days to ship your goods from China to your destination port. We’ll choose to ship with LCL or FCL depending on the volume of your goods.
For goods above 300 kg, this will be a much more cost-saving way. We will sort out clearance in China and airline service destination airport here, and organise local delivery taking 7 - 12 days.
For goods below 250-300kg good can be send on our DHL, TNT or FedEx accounts. Door to door service taking 5 - 8 days delivery.
