China Sourcing and Procurement Desk
The Melenco Sourcing & Procurement Desk (SPD)
An integrated purchasing, sourcing, quality control and communications service that allows international companies purchasing in China the possibility of having peace of mind when dealing with suppliers while conducting business from abroad.
This service saves the customer time, as communications are carried out in the same country, overcoming language, cultural or time-zone barriers that often delay foreign trade workflows.
The Desk also saves money for prospective customers, as the costs related to it are not significant when compared to those of the investment required to have a branch office in China, recurrent losses due to poor quality of products, or added margin by hidden trading intermediaries in the supply chain.
The SPD allows companies to customize its purchasing process management in China as Melenco is capable of performing.
