Simplify your procurement process and eliminate the complexities associated with numerous intermediaries. Partner with Rockhill Asia to streamline your journey and enjoy a hassle-free experience.


In today's complex business landscape, the procurement process often involves navigating through multiple intermediaries, which can present numerous challenges. From managing multiple parties and overcoming language barriers to coordinating complex logistics, it can be both overwhelming and time-consuming. However, Rockhill Asia provides you a solution that can revolutionize your procurement journey while simplifying the entire process, allowing you to focus on your core business. In this article, we will explore the complexities of traditional procurement and demonstrate how partnering with Rockhill Asia can eliminate these challenges, streamline your operations, and ensure a seamless experience.

Procurement is often a multi-step process involving various intermediaries. Let's delve into each step and the associated complexities:

Procurement Regular Practice
  • Step 1: Local Distributor: Relying on a local distributor introduces a range of limitations and complexities. Retailers often find themselves grappling with restricted product selection, limited pricing options, and compromised quality control. These limitations arise from factors such as the local distributor's margin, which impacts the availability, pricing, and competitiveness of products for retailers. As a result, retailers are left with reduced flexibility and are unable to fully explore their options in the market.

  • Step 2: Trading Company: The inclusion of a trading company in the procurement journey further adds to the complexity. Communication becomes a challenge as information needs to pass through multiple parties. Additionally, retailers also have to pay extra fees for the services of trading companies, which adds to their financial burden. Ensuring the credibility and reliability of trading companies also requires thorough due diligence, consuming valuable time and resources.

  • Steps 3 and 4: Overseas Factories (Big and Small): Directly dealing with overseas factories, whether big or small, presents its own challenges. Language barriers, cultural differences, and variations in quality control standards make it difficult to ensure effective quality control, leading to delays, product quality inconsistencies, and difficulties in accessing specialized products. It often requires hiring additional staff to bridge these gaps, leading to increased expenses and adversely impacting the procurement process's efficiency and budget.

  • Step 5: Overseas Freight Forwarder: Coordinating shipping logistics through overseas freight forwarders is a complex and demanding task that requires meticulous attention to detail. Retailers have to make sure shipments are properly coordinated, prepare all the necessary paperwork, and fix any errors that may arise. There's also the risk of delays and damaged goods, which can disrupt the supply chain and lead to higher costs. Dealing with multiple intermediaries further adds to the confusion and makes it harder for retailers to keep track of their shipments.

  • Step 6: Shipping: The final step of shipping brings a host of intricate challenges that retailers must navigate. Every aspect requires careful attention, from arranging shipments and dealing with customs clearance to handling essential documentation and selecting appropriate insurance coverage. Moreover, tracking shipments to ensure timely and secure delivery adds another layer of complexity. Successfully managing these complexities demands significant time and resources, diverting focus from core business operations.

Despite all these challenges, there's a solution that simplifies the entire procurement process. By partnering with Rockhill Asia, retailers can bypass the complexities of dealing with multiple intermediaries. With just one step, you can initiate the procurement process and let Rockhill Asia handle the rest.
