Delivery engineering from China

The importance of China in the modern process of goods turnover of any country can hardly be overestimated. In a few decades China has become the largest world leader in production of a wide range of products that are popular not only in Russia because of good value for money.

These factors make China one of the most long-term countries in terms of organization of import of a wide range of products – from clothes and footwear to high-tech electronic components.
 
Indeed, established process of work with Chinese products is a firm business where good profit can be expected. The most difficult part is a valid process structure.
 
Any trade is based on delivery and sales channels arrangement. The article considers the issues of delivery, while marketing operations are left behind.
 

How does one start making deliveries from China?

Option one – do-it-yourself. It is the most psychologically comfortable way of conducting business for some people, but the most important thing is to weigh your possibilities. Can you put everything aside and go to China for an uncertain amount of time? Is your Chinese good enough to communicate with representatives of manufacturers? Will you be able to estimate the terms and juridical abstrusities of the contract? Business mentality in China is very different from the Russian principles of arranging settlements. Will you be able to select a reliable and economic transport company? Or deal with customs issues? That’s hardly a full list of difficulties you’ll have to face.
 
Option two – search for major Russian wholesale companies that are capable of providing you with a certain range of products. It is a quite easy way but there is a major drawback – these goods are already available in the market, that’s why you have to forget about your assortment of goods exclusivity. Besides, prices will differ from the ones in Russia slightly.
 
Option three – is an arrangement of delivery channels via specialized firms that will be in charge of the whole process completely or partly, depending on your situation, and will assist you in your business process organization. We’d like to point out the advantage of the third option. The most important goal in establishing of trade business is the correct business processes design. In this case they include product search, contracts, transport, customs and some other issues. That’s why it is not the “first cargo” profit that matters the most at the first stage but the adjustment of the process of deliveries from China.
 
To our regret, the time of “lonely knights” of trade has passed. In fact, the main factor of the trade process you’d like to have is reliability.
