We sourced catalog stand for our client from Europe.
We sourced 200 pieces of catalog stand for our clients from Ireland as a sample order. As the catalog stand is too big to ship by air, so we arranged to ship them by mix container.
How we do sourcing for our client?
1) June 1st: Our client sent us the information about the catalog stand like specification and the quantity, quality he want.
2) June 2nd: We came back with a best quotation that we got from many suppliers and we told him the factory has stock and they can ship anytime when they receive the payment or deposit.
3) June 4th-6th: Our client wired the money and we placed an order in the factory. The factory shipped them to our warehouse when they collected the payment. Our people go to do quality control and we found out there are few of them damaged during the shipping. Therefore we called the factory and asked them to refund or changed them. The factory agreed to refund us for the damaged catalog stand and our client is happy with that.
4) June 7-8th: We booked the container and did all the document for shipping. We loaded the goods on 8th in Guangzhou and shipped them.
