The lure of manufacturing in China is irresistible to many businesses.
And no wonder. With its relatively low production costs and massive manufacturing capability, China offers businesses the opportunity to source goods profitably and reliably – provided you know what to look out for.
Red Flag – Your guide to Risk management when buying in China is a fascinating book that sheds light on the often hidden traps of manufacturing in China.
Covering a wide range of supply chain risks and illustrated with many real-life examples, Red Flag is a must read for anyone involved in getting goods made in China.
Author Carsten Primdal is an expert in risk management and supply chain consulting. He has more than 17 years experience – with around a third of these based in China. Carsten has witnessed many instances where a gap between the customer’s expectations and what was actually delivered (or how the goods were produced) caused significant problems for the customer. These included missed delivery deadlines, quality defects, safety hazards and non-compliance with environmental or corporate social responsibility standards – with costly and sometimes catastrophic implications for the business that placed the order.
Read Red Flag and open your eyes to risks you could be exposed to, and discover how you can control, reduce or avoid these risks altogether.
