IMEX Sourcing Services” division is a part of “IMEX Liaisons Group” and provides comprehensive sourcing, supplier/manufacturer verification, quality inspection, translation and import management services. We also provide a wide range of other services that complement the above services such as Cash on Delivery, Translation & Lab Testing services.
IMEX Sourcing Services provides complete sourcing & supplier verification services to help manage the client’s entire China sourcing process from finding manufacturers, to negotiating prices and from quality control to managing the shipping process. Due to our experienced sourcing specialists as well as factory relationships & trade volumes, we are able to procure prices that usually offer a substantial saving compared to prices offered on online B2B portals. This is because majority of the companies on online portals are trading companies who have a margin built in (sometimes substantial). By locating the root source, i.e. factories & workshops we are able to cut product costs for our customers from anywhere between 5% to 50%.
For clients who have existing relationships with suppliers or are looking to start one with suppliers they find valuable, we act as a third-party representing our clients and ensuring that the deadlines are respected and most importantly agreed quality standards are met.
While China is a great source for sourcing all kinds of products at good prices, unfortunately fraud is also a big business in China. Through our “supplier verification services” we help carry out a thorough background check of the suppliers background. Please contact us for details on the different levels of “Supplier Verification Services” we offer. We also help reduce risk of fraud through our “Cash on Delivery” services that are especially suitable for importers importing small quantities, i.e. LCL (Less than container load), Air Cargo & couriers, etc.
As part of our sourcing & quality control services, we also provide miscellaneous services and manage and plan our client’s China visit from booking hotels, to arranging factory visits and providing translators. This ensures that the clients can maximise the results of their china visit. The translators play a great role in helping clients who want to go through the product selection process themselves in China. Other than guiding our clients to the right vendors, markets and manufacturers our translators also help with negotiations with the manufacturers on the client’s behalf in the client’s presence, ensuring that there is complete transparency of prices agreed with the manufacturer.
