What do you need to know when you’re sourcing internationally?
Sourcing internationally comes with its share of advantages as well as challenges. So, what do you really need to consider when your company is looking to expand its supply chain sourcing from different parts of the world? We’ve gathered some of the key considerations from our team to keep in mind when you’re starting on your journey to build new supply chain relationships.
1) Assess your resources
Eugene Tsui, Global Head of Supplier Management at Pro QC
Budgeting is always tricky because how do you measure preventative measures in your supply chain? My advice: take a step-by-step approach for how you, as supply chain and quality professionals, can assess and justify your resources for a successful buy.
2) Patience is key
Daniel Ben-Ezra, Regional Director South and SE Asia at Pro QC
It’s important to start with patience, wherever you are sourcing from, but perhaps more so in South or Southeast Asia. If you go into your buy knowing that things may take a little longer for various reasons, then it will definitely make the whole process easier.
3) Golden Samples are important
Candace Wu, Associate Regional Director at Pro QC
The golden sample remains the ultimate test for whether a factory can meet expectations in manufacturing a final product that meets client requirements and expectations. There are a few important considerations during this part of the buying process though, and these should not be overlooked.
4) Look toward developing a long-term relationship
Rajesh GK, Head Technical Supervisor SEAMA at Pro QC
Building a relationship that goes beyond initial cost negotiations can lead to a mutually beneficial longer-term buyer-supplier association. It’s a step-by-step endeavor, but consistent collaboration throughout is key to creating the foundations for a strong association.
The Covid-19 pandemic has thrown up its share of challenges for production around the world – but spending time and effort to develop your relationship with new suppliers and teams that can help work with you to meet your buying needs, can go a long way toward creating a successful end-product. Your long-term level of comfort for your supply chain process will also be boosted as a result. Talk to us about how we can help.
