Goods from China

The largest share of exports from China are: textiles & clothing, EDP systems, radios & televisions, electrical engineering, machines and chemical products.

It speaks against imports from China that the quality does not always meet our expectations and the mentality that not always the best goods are delivered to new customers, but also rejects, in order to be able to supply current customers with better-quality goods and also to sell the rejects. There is not always an interest in acquiring new customers on a permanent basis. In addition, the distance often speaks against China. Express shipments or air freight are rather expensive and shipments by sea freight take a very long time. Traveling to China yourself is expensive and time-consuming and it takes a long time to get used to the language and the mentality. What speaks for China is the cheap production because wages and production costs are very cheap in China and of course the work ethic. In China, people often work late into the evening and even on Sundays and public holidays. If you work with a company on a long-term basis, you will also notice the friendliness and honesty. Since sea freight is very cheap, it is of course worth it to import from China if you can plan the long delivery times well

I commissioned the Agentur Frisch to have a larger piece of furniture produced in China and then to transfer it to Germany. Communication via email was smooth the whole time! Very quick and reliable answers constantly gave me the security that is essential in such an undertaking. I was helped through the bureaucratic jungle at all times and no forms were forgotten or filled out incorrectly. Very commendable!



Everything top. It doesn’t get any better than this. Consulting and implementation can not be done better. We are more than satisfied after several orders with this company and continue the cooperation.
