One of our clients, who is a buyer and re-seller of high-volume machine parts from China, recently had to deal through a local Chinese intermediary. Our client was unclear, at times, over the actual manufacturer and did not have any control over the actions of the intermediary. Not only that, but our client also had difficulty auditing the manufacturing process and tracing the parts, which created risks in traceability and compliance.
We were tasked with sourcing alternative supply manufacturers in other parts of Southeast Asia, and a key factor for our client was that our role was not to get in the way of the client and the supply manufacturer, but to facilitate it. Our client would have full autonomy once that relationship was bedded in.
By having a local auditor, we can help businesses increase their yield by identifying and tracking improvements along the whole supply chain. For more information about the key benefits of a localised supply chain, follow this link or contact Kiley Tan on 07885 784783 or email@example.com
