Furniture Sourcing Solutions by Tradegood
The idea of sourcing furniture overseas is questionable because of the high shipment costs. Business owners still struggle with the question of whether to find furniture manufacturers and suppliers overseas or just partner with local suppliers.
While producing furniture from Asia is a definite trend, due to the complexity of the furniture supply chain, location, high logistics costs, taxes, and strict legal requirements imposed by each importing country, buyers tend to avoid manufacturing operations based in Asia.
But sourcing a furniture factory is not just a consideration of location, but also of the need to take into account globalization which forces companies to compete in the global marketplace.
Aside from the cost advantage of working with furniture manufacturers in China, buyers working in this area are able to gain new ideas and concepts from talented designers as well as opportunities or partnerships in other Asian regions.
The Pearl River Delta is known as the furniture-production hub in China with the strongest production capability, followed by Fujian, Zhejiang, Shandong, Jiangsu, and Shanghai. Each city offers specialized furniture production. For example, redwood furniture is produced in Dayong and Zhongshan cities in Guangdong Province. On the other hand, Zhejiang Province is the home of bamboo reserves and furniture.
So is it worth looking for overseas suppliers? Yes, it is for sure, particularly if you are after quality and price.
