The easisest way to import from China


While on a first view it can be tempting to do everything by yourself to save cost on your product price, you will finally realized that managing chinese vendor is not as easy as it could be and, it would finally cost you even more than using an outsourced buying office locally established like Advanced Asia Sourcing to help and support your procurement operation.

Some of our customer have previously tried to manage order by themselves from overseas and usually come to the conclusion that they didn't save so much, got a lot of stress, faced hassle and finally lost a lot of time (and sometimes money) which in the end cost them finally more than using services of local experienced purchasing team already established on the ground and knowing how to deal with problem, communication issue and even more : legal, VAT, operationnal intellectual protection, good practice for sourcing and project management, existing infrastructure (office, warehouse) and equipment, logistics, etc...

Out of this, being far away and not locally established, the suppliers (once getting client deposit of course) usually enjoy the power to have money in hand whereas the cutomer is far away bringing to some situation where suppliers afford themselvs to operate in manner they would not do with a local established and registered entity capable to come almost any time in their place for "deeper" explanation.

Some of our other customer had in mind to set up their own buying office and buying team, but they quickly found out that they would need to go trough complicated chinese government administration process to be legal, capital injection to set up their structure, long process to hire employees who would finally leave just after they get trained, would need to pay uncontrollable taxes on all their expenses (representative office), etc...

In the end, our china buying office service helps our customer to sleep better as we handle hassle, issue and headache for them.
