Why use a professional
Sourcing internationally today is a lot easier compared to 20 years ago. There are many websites out there financed by factories so they are visible. However like everything else without the necessary know how sourcing can easily turn into a nightmare and cost significantly more than initially estimated. We hare at agile take manage the whole process from beginning to end to deliver a stress free experience while saving money and improving overall quality. Here are some examples of why you should use agile global trade as your sourcing company :
Vast network of existing factories and contacts
We have been sourcing for over 13 years globally and built a vast network of suppliers. These suppliers help us connect with other suppliers and help us locate a reliable low cost manufacturer easily and efficiently. This is one of the major strengths of an established sourcing company.
Locating invisible web suppliers
Besides our network of contacts, we have local agents to search the invisible web, that is companies not readily available on English spoken web. We are able to do local searches in local languages to find those invisible web factories
Confirming Suppliers and In Factory Inspection
It is quite common to encounter a supplier that is indeed a company in the middle and not the actual manufacturer, it is also very common to find out the supplier does not even have a company and could be risky to do business with. This is where Agile local agents come into play. We do in house assessments to make sure we are working with a reliable source.
We have local agents negotiating not only remotely but also face to face, we are here to represent you and get you to save the most amount of money for the ultimate quality.
