Product Sourcing - Assisted Direct Purchasing

Product Sourcing


Assisted Direct Purchasing

Businesses of all sizes can now reap the benefits of importing direct from China... previously only enjoyed by large corporations and multi-national companies.

If you don't seriously start investigating the benefits of sourcing your products in China, you can be fairly certain your competitors will.

You may already be buying products manufactured in China from your current suppliers, but after they have marked them up to 10 times.

ChinaDirect minimise the risks of sourcing in China by choosing reputable trade partners and using stringent systems to ensure product quality.

We will:
  • Tender your product out
  • Validate on potential suppliers
  • Present you with samples
  • Negotiate prices on your behalf
  • Perform quality checks
  • Arrange delivery to your door

We have the contacts, systems, people and resources to source you the best deal in China.

Custom Manufacturing

If your product doesn't exist in China and you need to get it specially manufactured, just give us detailed specifications, and we'll research and locate a suitable manufacturer.

We can use confidentiality agreements and other measures to help protect your valuable intellectual property.

ChinaDirect will manage the whole manufacturing project, including arranging samples to be manufactured, negotiations, quality control and logistics.

Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI)

Occurs when the merchandise is completed, packed and ready for shipment, or at least 80% of products packed.

Pre-Shipment Inspection is performed to an agreed Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) established between you and the supplier. At inspection, our inspectors check the available quantity, and then take samples based on the internationally recognized statistical random sampling technique, commonly known as ANSI/ASQC Z1.4, BS 6001-1, and ISO 2859-1. Inspectors will verify quantity, style, color, workmanship, size, packing and shipping mark. All with a view to ensure that the merchandise meets the contract specifications, or conforms to the approved sample.

You will receive a detailed Final Inspection Report, with digital images.
