Why catching defects is not enough…

Successfully sourcing your products from Asia implies being careful and diligent about each step of the manufacturing process.

QC (Quality Control) is one important step that responsible importers implement at some stages  of their production, usually before shipment because it is believed to be the most cost-efficient stage for quality control.

Avoiding Quality Issues during Storage and Transportation

When sourcing products from China or other Asian countries, you shouldn’t underestimate the chances of things going wrong during storage and transportation.

The products can be in a good state before shipment but if they are not packed, stored and shipped in proper conditions, you might receive them in a different state. Facing quality issues during storage and transportation is all the more difficult because it’s hard to find the culprit: is it the factory, the freight-forwarder, the buyer, or Mother Nature?

Minimizing Quality Issues with Exemplary Specifications

From my 10 years of experience working with Chinese suppliers, I must say that I am less concerned than other “industry experts” about the notoriety of the “Made in China” label.

Of course, there are scams and there are bad suppliers, who for example would say “yes” to everything and finally are not able to deliver, or who use “misunderstandings” as reasons to justify quality issues. But there also are good suppliers who deliver good quality of products, and even excellent quality when the customers engage properly with them and are clear on their needs.

Reducing the risks of quality issues involves acting on every part of the supply chain. When it comes to controlling non- conformities, setting a clear and complete set of specifications is one of, if not the most important part.
