SUPPLIER RELATIONSHIPS

From our years of research, communication, and factory visits, GSS have built a strong and diverse network of reliable suppliers globally. Operating in almost every industry, we are able to leverage our network to ensure we are working with the best supplier for each individual project. Our relationships with our suppliers are an invaluable asset to our business and with this, we are able to achieve great results for our customers no matter what they require.

SUPPLIER RESEARCH

Not only do GSS have access to more cost effective ways to approach the importing of your products, but we are also able to better assess the genuine legitimacy and capacity of manufacturers with our experience and resources. Before engaging with a supplier, we do our due diligence to ensure that they are a reliable partner. We do this through the use of trade software data, interviewing, and site visits from our in-country agents and contacts. Our comprehensive research allows us to create significant risk-reduction for our clients in an otherwise high-risk industry.

Quality Control

Quality can be difficult to control, particularly when manufacturing facilities are located offshore. GSS mitigate quality issues through engaging our partners on the ground to manage the production process and conduct strict QC checks throughout the order process. Further to this, GSS has formulated proven procedures and systems to greatly reduce the risk involved, allowing customers to be confident in our ability to produce to their specifications. To GSS, QC does not stop after the first production run, it is an ongoing consideration throughout the entire lifetime of a project. We use third party laboratories for testing as well as in-house equipment in our Brisbane HQ to test samples for an additional level of assurance.

Standards & Certifications

Many of the products we manufacture and import require a range of testing and certification to meet Australian, European & US standards. Due to the diversity of our clients’ industries, GSS has extensive experience in undergoing testing processes to obtain certificates and reports by SGS, TUV, Intertek, and more. As part of our due diligence, we also research the available methods of obtaining the required certification to ensure our clients are aware of the most cost-effective option.

Logistics & Importing

GSS also handles all logistics and importing matters, so our clients are not burdened with organising freight, transport, customs documentation, delivery or other related tasks. We can arrange full containers or, where required, utilise our competent shipping partners to consolidate shipments to achieve substantial cost savings for our clients where possible.
