After 3 years of Covid travel restrictions now lifted, We have just traveled and visited our Shanghai Office in China. On this trip, we also visited 14 factories in Ningbo, Wuxi, Yiwu, and Suzhou. While in Suzhou we attended a sourcing expo with about 350 Chinese factories attending. The expo was great and it allowed us to expand our factory resources. We then flew to our new office in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam for 10 days to visit more factories in Vietnam. This trip was to check on existing orders and source new products. This trip was a return to normal business and it was very successful.
We are tentatively planning our next trip to China and Vietnam for September/October 2023. We bring a limited number of projects per trip. If you are interested in having us outsource your production, please feel free to contact us.
We also have our staff located in China and Vietnam conducting regular factory visits for both our existing work and new projects. The timing of these visits may also depend on if there are any current local travel restrictions.
The virus travel restrictions in China have come to an end and business has started to return to normal.
We have also been following the current oversea shipping prices for 40ft containers to the west and east coast of the USA. They have stabilized and are back to pre-covid pricing. (May 2023)
