Our customer, a large furniture manufacturer, used to buy a large quantity and a variety of goods from regular or occasional local suppliers. GruppoY proposed to take a leap in the trading chain and buy what they really needed.
The GruppoY representative in China conducted a search for suppliers and proposed a total of three reliable factories ready to supply this product at competitive price. As an interesting fact, one of those factories was where their old Argentine supplier used to buy Analyzing all the variables, GruppoY chose one of them.
To give the final OK, a witness sample was requested from the supplier and in that way our customer made the final decision.
Once the witness sample was approved, GruppoY requested a pro-forma invoice. The customer sent the money advance to China and the production started automatically.
GruppoY followed the order status day after day, demanding the agreed delivery times and giving precise instructions to the supplier regarding the packaging and labelling of the boxes to prevent customs problems in Argentina.
GruppoY carried out an exhaustive control of the original documentation to avoid generating "unnecessary" expenses when the goods are dispatched in the Argentine Customs. These "unnecesary" expenses could be regarding classification and valuation of the merchandise. Our customs agent also collaborated to avoid any kind of contingencies.
Ten days later, the customer sent the balance to the supplier At this stage and with the goods 100% paid, the supplier sent the original documents to GruppoY via courier After checking thoroughly, they were handed over to the customs agent to proceed with the goods nationalization.
Thanks to our team of experts, the load was released by Customs within the stipulated deadlines and our customer could finally receive his first cargo imported from China.
GruppoY gathered all the documents and invoices and made a thorough analysis of the total cost of the order, including the goods value, commissions, transportation, freight, insurance, etc. In other words, the customer received a report where he could see precisely the final unit cost in Argentine pesos of the product he imported (from the Chinese factory to his warehouse).
Customer pleased with having lowered their costs by more than 40% and having the quality they were expecting for.
Pleased with not having faced any problems at Customs at Customs examination time
Pleased with having all the documentation in order in case Customs requires complementary documentation in relation to the goods valuation.
Pleased because achieving the same economic benefits with their own working structure would have been impossible.
