Importing from China for major industrial projects can be very cost efficient if you are experienced in all the complexities, contacts and local knowledge and can anticipate all that is required to plan and manage such a project through to completion. It is not for the feint-hearted. It pays off on many levels to put yourself in competent hands with a very experienced player in this game.
China Blueprint Consultants delivers this high level of professionalism and experience to Australian importers of heavy industry-related products and machinery. We systematically clear the path and take care of details on the ground on your behalf for major, complex and difficult projects.
When preparing to source or import from China for a large project, your company will benefit considerably from our assistance and expertise, from concept to planning to delivery and every important detail in between.
China Blueprint is experienced in project management in a range of heavy industry sectors including raw materials, components, engineered equipment and services from China.
It can be false economy to attempt this process on your own without the necessary experience and a successful track record in this field. Compliance of goods and services with Australian Standards and regulatory requirements are essential. Ensuring your manufacturer can achieve this is can be a complex process that China Blueprint will help you overcome.
China Blueprint acts as your procurement consultant, as well as your on-the-ground team supported by our full time China-based project managers, engineers and quality inspection teams. This turnkey solution includes sourcing, project management, quality assurance and document handling at all phases of the import process.
The proven China Blueprint standard service work flow includes these steps.
Step 1 - Analysis
Step 2 – Engagement
Step 3 - Process
At the beginning of your project, it is important that we firstly understand your product specifications and any standards or quality-related requirements relevant to your project. Being based in Australia means we work with you at the beginning to ensure your objectives are clearly understood. Once we have this information, a full brief is passed to our China-based team who carefully assess and identify a shortlist of suitably qualified manufacturers of your products. These suppliers are scrutinized to the highest level using our proven systems. This information is presented to you for further assessment along with the supplier’s tender offer.
Once you have chosen your supplier, which may include a factory site visit by you and your professional team, we start the real negotiations with them. Negotiations relate to the final order terms, including price, delivery and quality. Contracts are prepared and agreed upon by both parties. Moulding, tooling and packaging are prepared and approved where required. This is when expensive production work begins. Having your own specialised and dedicated team onsite in China, and speaking the language, is imperative to the success of your project. It gives you complete transparency with your supplier, the manufacturing process and clear lines of communication. You also benefit from China Blueprint’s extensive experience and knowledge to support you when important decisions are required. Importers that do not have a clear and structured communications process, and all the information, often make the most mistakes during this critical phase.
Throughout the production process, your China Blueprint team monitors and tracks the entire manufacturing process. Whilst most factories claim to have a quality assurance system in place, often these systems are not the same as we expect in Australia. It is important that you have your own independent representation on site during the production process to identify problems as they arise and quickly suggest corrective action where necessary before errors compound. This onsite monitoring can be as comprehensive or simple as the individual project requires.
Once goods are complete, transportation to the port and onwards to the final destination commence. If the goods require a non-standard container size or need to be consolidated, we conduct careful consultations with a qualified logistics company. Choosing the right shipping method to suit your products and destination is something China Blueprint already knows a lot about, having the experience of working with the best in the business. All of this work is encapsulated under our order management system.
