Oversea company prefers to work with a China sourcing agent due to a reliable agent can provide value sourcing services to save money and time.

A reliable sourcing partner always has an engineering team to help customers on everything about technology. Most of China sourcing agents offer this add-value services for free. If you want to use the free services, you’d better to know whether they can provide free technical support.
2, Quality control via China third party services company.
Cost down is important, but quality is the base. However, it is a high cost for oversea customer to audit products before shipment, so hire a third party agent to check for you is another economy ways of quality control. You should have know that it is high risk to import goods from China without pre-shipment inspection. Before you selecting a sourcing to work for you, you should know something about them, such as what is their specialize products, such as you need quality control engineer to help you check the die casting product, but you hire a Yiwu sourcing agent to help you. I think this is not the right thing, because most of the Yiwu agents are not engineering sourcing agent. You should hire a Shanghai agent like Discover Sourcing limited who is professional on metal and plastic components.
