Assisted Direct Purchasing
Businesses of all sizes can now benefit from importing directly from China, previously exclusive to large corporations and multinational companies.
If you don’t actively explore the advantages of sourcing your products in China, it’s likely your competitors will.

With our extensive network, systems, team, and resources, we can source the best deals for you in China. Take advantage of our complimentary Feasibility Check to determine if sourcing your product directly from China is viable based on the required quantity.

Need a reliable way to assess a potential supplier’s factory or inspect your goods before shipment? Our experienced China team members can assist with the following:
- Factory Audit
- During Production Inspection (DPI)
- Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI)
Our inspectors will:
- Confirm the factory’s existence
- Evaluate production competencies and capacity claims
- Verify the credibility of the representative you’ve been in contact with
- Assess the quality procedures in place.
The Factory Audit report will cover the factory profile, organization, production equipment, and capacity, quality assurance systems, technical standards, R&D, supplier management, hygiene, environmental and security measures, and social accountability.
During Production Inspection (DPI):
Inspectors will selectively assess products at various stages of the production line, focusing on:
- Identifying defects or deviations from quality standards in samples
- Determining the root causes of production defects
- Recommending practical solutions for defect rectification
- Inspecting and detecting poor-quality connections at different production stations
- Identifying supplier production weaknesses that lead to defects
- Performing product and component quality inspection before assembly
- Providing an In-line Inspection Report with digital photos
- Issuing a Corrective Action Report with digital photos
- Verifying the execution of the Corrective Action Report (CAR)
Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI):
Conducted when the merchandise is completed, packed, and ready for shipment or when at least 80% of the products are packed.
Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is performed according to an agreed Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) established between you and the supplier. During the inspection, our inspectors check the available quantity and take samples based on internationally recognized statistical random sampling techniques, such as ANSI/ASQC Z1.4, BS 6001-1, and ISO 2859-1. Inspectors will verify quantity, style, color, workmanship, size, packing, and shipping marks, ensuring the merchandise meets contract specifications or conforms to the approved sample.
You will receive a detailed Final Inspection Report with digital images.
Own Factory in China
Over time, some of our clients opt to establish their own factories in China.
Although we generally advise against this during the initial phases of engaging with China, it may be a suitable course of action for specific companies and products.
With extensive experience in setting up new factories in China, ChinaDirect can expertly guide you through every stage of the process.
