While some Indian suppliers are listed on Alibaba.com and Globalsources.com, they are few and far in between compared to their Chinese competitors.
An India based sourcing agent can bridge this gap, as you can utilize their vast network of domestic manufacturers and wholesalers, that you’d otherwise have a hard time locating.
In this article, we list some of India’s leading sourcing companies in various industries:
- Apparel and home textiles
- Construction materials
- Promotional products
How can they help me with the importing process?
At the very least, a sourcing company should connect you with a qualified supplier in India. However, most sourcing companies go much further than that, by offering the following services:
- Price negotiation
- Product specifications
- Prototype development
- Quality control
Notice that a proper sourcing company should share information about the suppliers they connect you with, rather than acting as a middleman.
A ‘sourcing company’ that refuse to disclose supplier name, contact details and address is not an actual sourcing company – but a trader.
