3 Practical Tools for Sourcing Manufacturers in Indonesia

With the increasing production costs in China, the number of buyers diversifying their sourcing destinations to other southeast Asian countries has risen dramatically and Indonesia has become one of the preferred import countries manufacturing Footwear, Textiles, Furniture, Electrical and electronic equipment, Rubbers, Handcrafts and Agriculture. If you are also interested in producing your products in Indonesia, let us give you 3 useful tools to find suppliers in Indonesia.

Sourcing Websites & Platforms in Indonesia

The first step to taking advantage of the Indonesian production industry is to find yourself some supplier options. And the two easiest and quickest ways are through sourcing websites and tradeshows. Due to the current travel concerns that the world faces today, connecting through online platforms is an amazing option that was challenging for buyers to do even five years ago. Here’s a list of three online websites/platforms to help get you started.

Sourcing Manufacturers in Indonesia via Tradeshows

For those of you who aren’t held back by travel restrictions or concerns, attending tradeshows is one of the greatest tools that connect suppliers to buyers. It gives each side the opportunity to develop an immediate face-to-face connection, which has the potential to build a great business relationship for generations to come. If you have the capability to enjoy a casual business trip to Indonesia, the end of this article has a few tradeshows you could look into attending.

How do you ensure the suppliers are reliable before you send them a payment?

The best part of finding a new supplier in a new market is that there are services available that can help ensure that you’re investing in the right supplier for you. At V-Trust Inspection Services we have been servicing the main production areas of Indonesia for years. And not only through our most commonly used services of Product Inspections, but also through our extremely important Supplier Evaluation service.

By ordering a Supplier Evaluation, such as Factory Audit, you can uncover problems before investing in your first order. You can have a clear understanding of your supplier's capabilities, quality control system, management, and operating procedures. This enables you to select a qualified supplier with confidence. And this confidence is important for opening up new opportunities that have the potential to benefit your business greatly.
