Our customers are able to take full advantage of the significant cost savings associated with direct access to Chinese and Asian-based manufacturing; from initial enquiry, through quotation to manufacturing, quality inspection, shipment, delivery and payment

It is not only this that makes us unique, however.  Our flexible approach provides our customers with other significant advantages, as follows

  • By accepting longer, fixed price orders and then delivering them in multiple shipments over a period of time, we are able to help customers balance stock levels and avoid over-stocking, which is often problematic when importing..

  • Orders from several different product ranges can also be consolidated into single shipments to help our customers oversome the difficult issue of full container load requirements.  This minimises unit shipping costs and can further assist in the management of stock levels.

  • We can eliminate the uncertainty of currency variation by accepting orders, invoicing and collecting payment in our customers' local currency.

  • All logistics are handled by Sinops' experienced team, including sea freight booking, port and customs clearance and delivery to our customer.  We can offer a fully inclusive, delivered "directly to door" option for simple, hassle-free supply.

  • Products are manufactured by factories that have been researched, visited and chosen by Sinops for their reliability and commitment to quality.  In the unlikely event of any quality issues, we can resolve the problem quickly and efficiently.  Our customers will not be faced with the usual difficulties in dealing with overseas suppliers and their well-known reluctance to resolve disputes.

Experience where it counts


Our long standing relationships with the most trusted and established suppliers combined with expert local knowledge ensures a stress free outsourcing experience for all our clients.
