China Purchase Management Services during & after the Pandemic
When you are not able to come to China with the Coronavirus Pandemic, Shentou could help with production, monitoring, coordination, quality control, and many more on the ground in China!
Dilemma faced by the international buyers who rely on Chinese suppliers
With the joint efforts by the Chinese Government, the healthcare professionals and the people, the novel coronavirus crisis inside China has been effectively contained and most of the Chinese supplies are gradually returning to normal operations;
But the coronavirus pandemic is still going on globally, seriously impacting almost everywhere and everyone. Unfortunately, all signs are that the worst yet to come.
All these have brought serious disruptions to the supply chain operations for almost all international buyers. It is currently impossible for European companies to send their purchasing staff to China for normal purchasing activities such as factory qualifications and quality controls. It will also likely remain like this for quite some time even after the pandemic is over.
Therefore, how to control the quality of the products being produced in China, how to manage new suppliers under development, how to inspect or audit the suppliers, and how to inspect the goods before shipments, etc., there are tough questions almost everyone is facing.
