Take the direct route to better margins, faster inventory turns and greater profits. 以更高的利润率、更快的库存周转率以及更大利润为导向
There can be many players between an Asian factory and a Western retail chain. Every importer, agent, distributor and trading company can add more cost than value. Factory direct buying is the solution and engaging BRF Global can help you optimize the benefits while mitigating the risks.
Opportunity assessment: What products should you buy direct? How do you reset the price on a lower-costing, higher-margin item to increase inventory turns and operating profits? BRF Global uses proven methodologies to help you evaluate import opportunities and drive maximum benefit to your bottom line.
Creative sourcing: There is more to sourcing than visiting the Shanghai Hardware Fair. Walk the floors of a factory and you could find that a mini-blind factory also has a cut-and-sew operation for curtains or realize that a wallpaper prep table in one market could be a portable camping table in another. BRF Global has years of experience with the kind of creative sourcing that helps home channel retailers find new, higher-margin opportunities.
Merchandising and packaging: Would cut-case packaging or quarter-pallet shipping make for more attractive, more efficient displays? What cross merchandising opportunities can have the most positive impact on sales? Could a sticker on a barbecue grill’s box help you cross-sell propane? BRF Global works with home channel retailers on five continents. We can show you what’s worked in the past, what could work for you going forward and how to get factories to deliver.
Negotiation: Western merchants and Asian factories do not negotiate the same way. Withhold or share the wrong information and you can miss out on a major opportunity or pay more for merchandise than necessary. BRF can help you negotiate the best deals with the best Asian suppliers.
Quality assurance: A product can meet every specification, pass every inspection, and still fall apart in your customer’s hands or a human rights group may find eight-year-olds packing cartons headed to your distribution center. At BRF Global, we use deep network contacts and proven processes to ensure that your better-priced products are also better products. Learn More.
Import organization development: BRF Global can help you build an import group within your organization, complete with the systems and procedures they need to become your best vendor—delivering superior quality, merchandising, design, sourcing and logistics support, even as you obtain better products at the lowest possible costs.
Sourcing office development: With the right people and systems in place, your overseas sourcing office can more effectively deliver products that better suit your overall business needs. BRF Global can help you optimize the performance of your overseas sourcing office.
Private Label: BRF Global has extensive experience with private labels. In one scenario, BRF Global helped a major retailer launch a line that immediately boosted category sales by 16% in its first year and 59% by the end of the second year. Gross margins for the category increased 139% and the label helped drive additional traffic to the store. Learn More.
