25 May WHY TRADINGS ARE OCCUPYING A VERY IMPORTANT ROLE ON THE FASHION BUSINESS
Many companies have been preferring to establish business’s relationships with tradings instead of the usual factories but why is that happening so much nowadays if trades are a concept of business that are not that new in the market? Here we list the main reasons why tradings are becoming more and more trustable and likely to do business to the companies in need of different kinds of products:
1- Tradings are usually focused in one kind of segment: we have experience buying a certain type of product, especially in the region where we are based, where factories are already used to our presence and have already installed good partnerships. That makes of tradings very specializes companies in its products what helps us to produce in a shorter period time and to be less likely to commit mistakes with all the process that are involved. We also understand the destination market’s requirements, and can make small adjustments/approvals in very specific ways with help of qualified professionals.
2- The importer can call someone and have a quick, effective, and sensible conversation to employers that are trained for it inside of the tradings, what makes all the process easier and much more simple. Usually tradings have their own office or show room what makes the contact with the consumer much more organized and easy.
3- In the eyes of the importer, the trader is the supplier, which means that if we have problems with our sources, we are entirely responsible for that. We are more likely than local suppliers to take responsibility in cases like that.
4- The time and economic savings are a huge vantage for the buyers. For example, the tradings can do all the sourcing process, be responsible for a Quality Control inspection and be very aware of the shipping deadlines. With a more concentrated work, with less variables that can affect the development, quality and delivery time, we also reduce the numbers of interlocutors and the possibilities to have problems between the processes.
5- Tradings can be very big companies but they can also be small sizes what makes the relationship with clients very close because they tend to be more organized.
6- Another key factor are the prices: tradings can not only make the clients spend less money by speeding the productions or by being very responsable with every step of development, we can also garantee not less competitive prices from our sourcing by negociating directly with factories. They receive from us a good volume of product’s demand what make prices much more negociable.
In the garments process, tradings can be very helpful by granting the best prices with their sources, go after exactly what costumers need and help to make all the fabrication process way shorter and with higher quality. Another great point is that our participation in the best fashion trends fairs in the world is increasing a lot,what makes of us very actualized companies to offer professional support with all the products, especially if the the garments have a lot of details such as different fabrics, zippers and unique design.
