Originally called e-trade2china, ET2C, has quickly become a global leader in all areas of China sourcing. Sourcing products in China is probably one of the most important aspects of doing business with China. There are many elements involved in sourcing and procurement.
First, researching the market and having excellent contacts in China. Thanks to ET2C sourcing and procurement, they take care of all research, market strategy, and have been a leader in the Chinese markets with solid long-standing excellent relationships with multiple vendors for the last eighteen years!
Negotiations are also typically a major part of any business. When dealing with a Chinese company, these can be intimidating, frustrating, and time-consuming. Often as an early business, affording to have eyes and ears on the ground, so to speak, is not possible. ET2C, meanwhile, handles these negotiations and all communications for you, as a constant supportive hub, ET2C, understands and values all industries, from big to small companies. In other words, you don’t have to wait to be a multi-billion dollar distributor, for them to work hard for you.
Next in line, for sourcing is, of course, order samples. With more than 2000 supplier contacts ET2C can provide you with excellent samples in a wide range of industries. They source everything from garments, footwear, jewelry, industrial and consumer goods, health and beauty, furniture, gardening and tools, and even pet care! If you have something you need to be sourced, ET2C is your global partner.
As a brief side note, remember that many markets to a North American company, operate under its own unique culture and code of conduct. This is why having native employees, deeply familiar with the ethos and methodology of your potential partner is essential. In other words, you need an expert in Asian Markets. In a fascinating bit they wrote on their site, ET2C describes an insider view of strategic sourcing in Asia. They write the following about Sourcing and Procurement:
Asia will continue to be an important component of any outsourcing strategy for the foreseeable future. However, understanding how best to extract value from the Asian manufacturing sector is not always straightforward. The continent presents a unique set of challenges, for example across business ethics, local laws, local regulations, cultures, and language. There are also differences within each country that need to be understood and factored into any decisions made. Ultimately, how companies strategically choose to engage with Asian manufacturers is a decision on risk against profitability.
In other words, being caught without a strategic partner that is an in-house sourcing expert in Asia, could leave you high and dry when it comes to procuring your products. That being said, ET2C, still offers an option to have your own local base, an option that is very unique to ET2C.
