China Sourcing

We are knowledgeable about Asian manufacturers, predominantly Chinese. We consider our China manufacturing sourcing service " not only sourcing but also analyzing, bridging and understanding."

Our sourcing process is efficient and ensures that our customer’s needs are fulfilled. Here’s how our China sourcing service works:

  1. We conduct as many skype video conference calls with our customer as required to understand their needs.
  2. We will conduct Internet research and refer to our database of companies to determine potential suppliers. We will create a data table to record the search results and report back to our customer.
  3. We will narrow down the list of suppliers the customer wants to work with to a manageable amount. Then, we will contact the suppliers to further learn their capabilities, and further develop relationships with them. We will also report the results of these contact meetings to our customer through a skype video meeting.
  4. Finally, we help to set up multiple skype audio/video meetings as required with the suppliers and our customer. We will assist our customer in negotiating a price and supply chain logistics.

With the above China sourcing process, we will help our customer find reliable Chinese manufacturers. We will also help our customer manage the sourcing processes including supplier identification and pre-qualification, quotation management, auditing, product development and testing, contracting and supplier selection, QC management, logistics management, payment and supplier development.

Supplier Qualification

To fully qualify a supplier, a visit to the supplier production site in China is the only reliable way to truly know its capabilities and processes. However, to accomplish this, requires expensive travel cost and usually there exists a language barrier. Dawar International handles the supplier qualification for you. We can visit the suppliers and collect all the necessary information for you before you make a decision on which supplier to use. We will check the factory organization, its process flows, the quality of goods produced, the packaging, the workers' training level, the overall working conditions, equipment maintenance, etc. We are also able to verify the compliance with ISO quality principles and make recommendations on which supplier will best fit your requirements.

Supplier Qualification Process:

  1. You provide us with the list of requirements or criteria you want to check with the suppliers.
  2. We will prepare the Supplier Qualification report. The Supplier Qualification report will give you an indication of how the companies are managed. From there, you can better decide to make your own trip to conduct a physical, real audit or not.

Trip Meeting & Arrangement

If desired, we can take care of your business travel to China in order to visit the supplier of your goods. A face-to-face meeting with the supplier's management team will give you an idea of their experience and willingness to embark on your project. You will also be able to create a friendly relationship, which is crucial for your project! Our understanding of the Chinese culture and our experience in manufacturing will prove invaluable in planning your visit, especially if this is your first visit to China.

As part of our Chinese business meeting services, we can offer trip arrangements, if you have several suppliers to visit. We will help you arrange the most efficient meeting schedule that can save you time and money. We can contact the suppliers to check the meeting time, pick-up service, hotel booking, and all the necessary arrangements for your business trip to China. You don’t need to worry about anything about the trip logistics, and that allows you to only concentrate on the business aspect of it.
