What Makes Us Different?

We've built a sourcing service that reduces supply chain risk and gives clients unrivalled access to cutting-edge logistics tech.
It's about doing more than delivering on time, to spec and in budget. This is what makes our service different:

1. It's 100% End-To-End

We can manage the full process on your behalf, from initial design to final delivery. We'll discuss what's critical and always give clear, simple choices on decisions like product spec, delivery scheduling and shipping incoterms.

2. Critical Path Technology

We've got nothing to hide. We share everything with you by giving access to our critical path software, Salix. Whether viewing production stats, checking QC photos or tracking a vessel you can always get a real-time update.

3. On-Site Monitoring

We don't just sit back and leave it to our factories overseas to get everything right. Our own staff are on-site every single day monitoring production and collaborating with producers to improve systems. We know that's the best way.

End-To-End Product Development

We never overpromise. We work with you to develop your creative ideas and ensure that we meet your critical path. If something isn't achievable due to design, spec or logistics we'll tell you early on. We set clear, realistic expectations and then strive to exceed them.

We normally manage the full sourcing process from end-to-end to minimise risk. Projects typically progress through similar stages:

Shipping Incoterms Explained

Incoterms can appear complex. Our team are happy to help guide you through the options.
We manage 99%+ of our orders from end-to-end, usually on DDP or FOBcc terms.

Import other items that we don't supply? We're well equipped to move this stock for you at competitive rates.

Delivered Duty Paid (DDP)

We manage everything from start to finish.

The majority of our orders are placed on a DDP basis, this is our full service where we manage product sourcing and delivery from end-to-end. DDP includes:

  • All Item Costs
  • All Duty (Item & Freight)
  • Origin Customs Clearance
  • Ocean Freight
  • Marine Insurance
  • Customs Clearance
  • UK Delivery
  • HANDOVER POINT: Delivery @ Destination

Free-on-Board Customs Cleared (FOBcc)

Ocean Freight is handled and costed separately.

Prices include item duty and loading onto a vessel, but no shipping. We would normally manage the shipping for you as well, but it's not a requirement:

  • All Item Costs
  • Item Duty
  • Port Delivery & Loading
  • Origin Customs Clearance
  • UK Customs Clearance
  • HANDOVER POINT: On Board @ Origin Port

Critical Path Technology

If there's one thing we love to show off it's Salix. Our critical path software provides complete visibility of project progress. It's an extremely powerful tool, and we give clients full access.

Salix shows you timestamped imagery to validate QC. During shipment you'll see a live satellite location for your stock. It gives complete end to end traceability for use in audits like ISO9001. It's a uniquely useful and reassuring piece of supply chain tech.

On-Site Monitoring

An overseas office in a metropolis hundreds of miles away from production is a step in the right direction, but actually having staff on the ground at sites every day is what gets the best results.

Our teams in the Far East do just that. Being on site regularly allows us to fix issues at source, not on delivery. The team oversee on-site auditing and quality control, leaving our UK team to handle logistical practicalities like customs clearance and vessel booking.
