Sourcing from China

 

 

Choosing the right path

Perhaps the easiest way for a company to source in China is to link up with an existing supplier's operations there. This allows for Chinese production prices at a familiar level of quality control and delivery. Companies that are understaffed or on a tight budget can turn to China sourcing agents. Outside help on China sourcing ranges from matchmaking to consulting on logistics and quality control. According to McKinsey Quarterly, procurement agents' fees in China sourcing range from 3 to 12 percent of the purchase price, depending on the level of service.

Execution and Operation

Maintaining quality controls, as well as communication channels, is key to successfully sourcing in China.

How do you structure the relationship with your China sourcing partner? Some companies use a full-service China sourcing agent and others set up a PRC representative office to manage China sourcing operations. Companies with longer planning horizons, more management heft, and a commitment to the Chinese market may choose to set up a wholly foreign-owned enterprise (WFOE), a more popular means of entry than the joint venture. Some companies acquire a PRC firm to jumpstart their WFOE formation.

No matter what route you take, maintaining high product quality will be challenging. For critical components with a low tolerance for error, having an employee on the ground to monitor the manufacturing process is indispensable. For other goods, regular onsite inspections, random product sampling, and periodic holistic evaluation of supplier operations generally suffice. Quality maintenance, delivery performance, inventory, and cost savings should all be reviewed regularly. If there are breaches, the PRC supplier must have a non-negotiable timeline for returning to the standards.

Strong communications systems are critical to supply chain management. According to our experiences, the order-to-delivery lag can be as short as twelve days but can run up to eight weeks. If demand changes unpredictably or there is no capacity for excess inventory, good communication between China sourcing suppliers and US clients becomes crucial. Good online technology also encourages local operations to coordinate buying efforts and thus maximize the cost savings that Chinese procurement brings.
