Made in China Sourcing: Your Source for Wholesale Chinese Exports and Imports to Australia
Manufacturing in China is a concept that seems natural for so many businesses. After all, that ‘Made in China’ tag is everywhere for a reason. With the right partners, sourcing products from China is the fastest, most efficient and most affordable way to build a high-quality, on-spec products.
The Challenges of Chinese Product Sourcing
What many businesses don’t realise when they wade into the pool of Chinese product sourcing for the first time is how complicated the process is. First, you have to find a manufacturer that will accept your sourcing project. This step involves researching different factories and manufacturing companies throughout China’s industrial centres, getting pricing quotes, conducting factory inspections, submitting specifications for a product sample and reviewing the sample to determine whether or not you need to make changes to your specs.
Even with all of this research and legwork done, you still have to deal with the communication phase of the process. When you source your products in China, they are your designs and your products, but due to their manufacturing country, are still technically China exports to Australia. To get your inventory sourced, manufactured and imported into Australia, you need to:
- Negotiate contractual terms
- Create a contract that communicates terms in both English and Chinese
- Get all of the necessary signatures for the contract
- Negotiate quality control procedures
- Negotiate manufacturing dates
- Inspect and/or test the goods to make sure they are up to standard
- Arrange for your Chinese imports make their way to Australia
- Make sure that your China exports to Australia have the necessary paperwork and permits to get through customs and to your business
Needless to say, there are a lot of different factors to consider when it comes to manufacturing and purchasing China imports wholesale. If you don’t speak much or any Chinese, navigating these steps can be borderline impossible. The fact that you are probably trying to make all of the necessary arrangements and negotiations from Australia makes the process that much more difficult.
