Understanding the sourcing process

The global product sourcing process is an integral part of any international business. It involves finding the best suppliers for your products, negotiating prices and terms, and managing the delivery of goods from their origin to any Port in Australia and then, finally, your premises. This process can be complicated, requiring companies to evaluate different factors before deciding which supplier to choose. By understanding the various stages of the global product sourcing process, businesses can ensure that they are taking advantage of all available resources and efficiently utilising them.

Step One

The first step in the global product sourcing process is researching potential suppliers. You should take time to understand client’s needs and identify potential suppliers who can meet those. During this stage, we can help you assess the countries where there may be cost savings, compare supplier capabilities, and review quality standards. Additionally, we look into the reputation of a potential supplier by conducting background checks and verifying references.

Step Two

The second step in the global product sourcing process is negotiations with suppliers. Premier Sourcing will negotiate competitive prices and the best terms for your businesses. Once an agreement has been reached between the two parties, a contract will be established that outlines all necessary details, such as payment terms and delivery requirements.

As part of step two, the ordering process is started, which involves providing detailed specifications to ensure that orders are filled accurately, regular order status reports, international money transfers, and establishing a consistent relationship with suppliers.

Step Three

The third and final step in the global product sourcing process is the delivery of goods. Shipments must be safely transported from origin to destination, on time, and without damage. We partner with you to review documents related to each shipment, such as invoices and bills of lading, to ensure orders have been filled correctly. This ensures our goods are not delayed in quarantine.
