How Do I Find the AIC for a Specific Region?
How Good is the Information on Chinese Suppliers?
Quick Tip: If you want to go this route, make sure when you post your job on Upwork, that you specify you want a Chinese person with experience working for either a logistics company or a factory. This way, they can usually get you much more pertinent information, as they know where additional resources can be accessed to aid you in your verification quest (bank accounts, insolvency, customs house registration, etc)
Is There an Easier Way to Get This Information?
We’re glad you asked! As you probably know, Guided Imports provides sourcing services for select customer. You’re welcome to share details about your product here.
However, we also suggest Examine China as an excellent resource for those that do not utilize Guided Imports full service packages. They put together a great report and send it right to your inbox so you can decide on whether to pursue a relationship with any suppliers you are vetting.
The price you’ll pay for NOT verifying a potential supplier is NOTHING compared to what it could cost you if you don’t! We’ve seen it happen to other customers who end up calling us in a panic begging us to try and help them out of an almost hopeless situation. Don’t let that be you!
