In the course of the cost-trend, diversification and the administrative relief of the purchase manager, outsourcing makes much sense.
Own import departments within your company, dealing with all administrative matters, follow-up of payments and opening letter of credits, are useful and desirable for monitoring all schedules.
A lot of companies are running in addition own overseas agencies with not irrelevant expenses.
BUT is the expected quality by your company / your purchase manager along herewith still guaranteed?
AND are trivial things like scannable EAN-Codes, correct packing, correct assortment and carton-markings are still assured.
Is the quality control and delivery schedule guaranteed?
M/S GRADA TEXIL GmbH / European Textile Contor is not claiming to be better at all this, but due to being specialised in certain areas we can assure a high and frequent standard from order placement up until goods are shipped.
Unexpected problems can be avoided in advance and respective actions can be proceeded in time.
And all that in teamwork with your company and the supplier.
