1. Sourcing Expertise in Vietnam
Vietnam B2B Direct has been sourcing for worldwide clients for the past 14 years and has acquired a strong expertise in “Business Matching.”
Our Staff has visited well over 1,000 Vietnam Factories and we have a very detailed Internal Database of over 3,000 Vietnam Companies that we have had direct contact with in one way or another. The difficulty of “sourcing” for foreign companies is that many of the Vietnamese companies do not have websites and the Vietnamese Law states that the Factory’s namesakes must be in the Vietnamese language … all of which make it difficult for foreign companies to locate the Vietnam Manufacturer pertinent to their needs. We use 8 different methods to locate Factories of which we speak direct to the company owner or General Director or Export Sales Director. The Vietnam Sourcing Report we deliver to our clients provides a lot of key Company information such as Contact Details, the person we spoke with, their website, the products that they produce, the markets that they serve, Corporate Profile stats and much more.
Our clients come from all over the world and manufacture here in Vietnam in almost every industry. The key to manufacturing success is “eyes, ears and boots on the ground”. In other words it is important that there is full Purchase Order Oversight and regular communication with the factory. Even though many Vietnam Factories now have English speaking personnel, the communication between the Buyer and the Factory can break down easily when it comes to artwork, printing, packaging, measurements, materials, compliance laws and regulatory laws from the Buyer’s country. Having Vietnam B2B Direct manage the Purchase Order Oversight ensures no surprises when its’ Client opens their container or shipment of goods. It is much less expensive to fix the problem before shipment than after!
The foreign Corporate Buying and Procurement Veterans of Southeast Asia, particularly in China over the past 30 years, have the battle scars to prove that it is most important to have these “eyes, ears and boots on the ground” at all times to ensure product quality and reliability.
It is also fair to say that most Vietnam Manufacturers have very little experience directly with the final foreign consumers buying demands and expectations regarding product quality, performance and packaging to understand fully the impact when the product is not made and prepared to 100% of the Purchase Order specifications.
When asked what is the difference between Quality Control and Quality Assurance a reliable definition is the following: Quality Assurance is process oriented and focuses on defect prevention, while Quality Control is product oriented and focuses on defect identification. Vietnam B2B Direct focuses on both as per the Client’s specifications.
Vietnam B2B Direct employs a QC Engineer and QC Team of fully trained staff that visit factories on our client’s behalf for AQL Inspections and specific client requirements. Also, we have staff engaged with some factories for full in-line daily inspections.
Having visited over 1,000 Factories during the space of 12+ years for client requirements in almost every industry, Vietnam B2B Direct understands the psychology and behaviors of the Vietnamese Business Owners which results in successful negotiations and strong cooperation’s between parties. Vietnam B2B Direct has prepared numerous Sales Contracts in the Vietnamese and English Language on behalf of our clients to ensure they comply with Vietnamese Law fully protecting our clients’ rights.

They will make you feel comfortable right from arrival and give you peace of mind while doing business in a foreign Asian country. If desired they can arrange and provide a complete itinerary with details of your stay and visitation to factories in Vietnam. Saigon is an exciting place to live and work and becoming a dynamic business hub in Southern Vietnam, as the country transitions from a ‘frontier economy’ to ‘emerging “tiger” economy’ in Southeast Asia.

They strive to protect the integrity of your brands and intellectual properties (IP) as Vietnam does belong to and is a member of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
International trade solutions that span continents and time zones is difficult even for the experienced, so finding a local company in an Asian country like Vietnam that you can trust and develop a long term business relationship is the key to success. If you cannot trust and respect your country sourcing partner, then there really is no point in developing a business relationship.
