In our current economic and political climate – many western companies are actively working to move their business and production out of China. Many are hoping to bring their production back to their home countries, or to other low-cost manufacturing companies. There are many reasons for the manufacturing moves – some are renewed nationalism, some are seeking lower wage bases compared to the continued rise in China, many are to combat the ever-increasing tariffs and duties placed on China made goods.
Whatever your reason to move your production out of China – either to your home country or to a lower cost or closer regional country – It is imperative that you have a local, impartial, trained, and skilled China supply chain management company assisting you with this move. There are so many variables, uncertainties, and issues that can come up along the way during the uncoupling activities.
The COVID pandemic and the massive travel bans has made it impossible for Western visitors – especially the buyers and manufacturing engineers from the USA to visit China to supervise, inspect, and insure that the much necessary movements of tooling, machinery, and capital assets are properly transferred. Whether it is new equipment which is being manufactured in China to send to your newly selected destination – or currently owned molds, fixtures, and robotics that have been paid for & required… it is vital that you work with a company that can represent your interest and ensure that you will be receiving what you expect at your new production destination. It is exponentially easier to inspect and correct the situation prior to the shipment – compared to potential huge problems which are often experienced at the receiving end.
There are so many inherent problems and issues that can arise – from large to small that must be considered when buying or moving equipment from China to a new onshored or reshored destination. Small things like the electrical plugs compatibility and the machine warning, safety, and instruction labeling language… to larger things like the proper crating and package preparation of the necessary tools, fixtures, and especially testing equipment… to the very large things like – potentially sabotaged equipment which is intentionally damages, or key critical components ‘accidentally’ left behind. These are all preventable issues that we can assist with.
