Need to import goods from China?

China is the world’s number one trading nation. Many Australian and New Zealand supply chains depend on manufacturing operations in China. It’s both cost-effective and efficient but comes with its own risks and challenges.
While it represents a huge opportunity for your business, global supply chains are easily disrupted when importers don’t properly consider their choice of logistics partner or put blind faith in their supplier to arrange transportation and exportation.
Long transit times and space shortage leading to higher freight costs during peak shipping periods are just a few of the factors you need to consider. If you can’t get your goods to market in time to meet demand, your logistics network has let you down.
A carefully selected logistics partner can help you overcome these China supply chain challenges.
