How QCI Benefits Product Sourcing Managers
If you serve as a product sourcing specialist or manager in the supply chain, much of the burden for merchandise that does not meet your company’s quality standards on imported shipments can land with you. If distributors, direct buyers or others down the supply chain discover a quality issue with a shipment of overseas merchandise, you may find yourself scrambling for answers to tough questions. Fortunately, with a trusted partner like Quality Corrections & Inspections, you can provide an answer and cost-effective solution to these challenging situations.
How to Manage Defective Goods as a Product Sourcing Manager
Depending on the source of the goods, you may have the option to return the merchandise to the manufacturer or supplier and hope for a fast and affordable replacement or rework. But this is not always a practical solution — especially if the shipment came from China or another distant overseas location. Unless you have established a solid business relationship with the supplier, you might not receive the new or repaired goods in time to satisfy the demands of your customers. And how can you be sure that you will not experience the same quality issues that plagued the original order?
A more efficient and typically more cost-effective solution is to have the goods reworked or repaired right here in the USA. You won’t have to deal with the lag in shipping time, and the expense is often much lower than when returning the shipment to its point of origin. You will also have greater control over the quality of the repaired merchandise.
