We collaborate. We innovate. We source. We oversee.
As a global multi-channel sourcing platform supplier, we have the unique capability to serve our customers' business and product needs regardless of how they source their products; either through our agency-based sourcing services or our product-focused principal trading solutions, where we act as importer/wholesaler or direct supplier.
We create an array of consumer goods across a wide range of product categories. These include everything from designer apparel to home decor and furnishings, children's clothing, handbags and accessories, toys, sporting goods and footwear, as well as health and beauty products.
Our agency-based sourcing services, in which we act as a strategic sourcing partner to our customers under long-term contracts, represent a significant part of our trading business. Under our agency sourcing arrangements, we provide strategic sourcing services to our customers, such as product development and costing, factory compliance, order processing, manufacturing control, and logistics. To enhance our customers' competitiveness, we also provide trend forecasting, market analysis, industry intelligence, raw material procurement, and strategic insights on the global supply chain to help our customers procure high quality products with short lead time and speed to market.
In our product-focused principal trading business we act as a principal supplier to our customers, operating primarily on a merchandise program-by-program basis; where the terms of each order are mutually agreed on a per program basis. We are continuing to develop our product expertise and move deeper into product verticals to solidify our leadership position in specific product categories.
Our comprehensive product design and development capabilities enable us to take an initial design idea all the way through to the finished product in the consumer’s hands. We constantly strive to address each customer’s specific needs in the areas of design, sales and marketing, and distribution as well as responsibly managing the entire supply chain end to end. Our dedicated teams of product specialists focus on each customer segment, leveraging their close ties with suppliers to offer inside knowledge that helps customers make informed buying decisions.
Our customers include global brands, department stores, hypermarkets, specialty stores, catalogue-led companies, and e-tailers.
Our global multi-channel sourcing platform allows us to capture sourcing opportunities from customers that use various channels to source their merchandise. We offer flexible solutions to our customers and work with them across multiple product categories and production markets, no matter how they sell or how they want to buy from us. By tapping into our global network and expertise to manage their supply chain complexity, our customers can focus on retailing and branding, while optimizing their sourcing strategies, ensuring speed to market and better cost and quality control.
