Europe Product Sourcing Services
Europe Product Sourcing Services
Many British and European firms are seeking to bring elements of their Far East supply chain back closer to their home countries. This strategy enables them to reduce their costs of transport, costs of storage and costs of finance. Many firms, especially those involved with furniture products, find that sourcing products from Europe are cheaper when compared to China or the Far East. TCI has been assisting British and European buyers to source products from Europe for over 10 years.
As one of the largest global trading blocs, the European Union offers buyers a diverse range of products. Many buyers often incorrectly see Europe as an expensive area to source goods. However, since the financial crisis in 2008, Europe offers fantastic value in the areas of Furniture, Wood Products, Construction Suppliers, Apparel and Fabrics, Food and Alcoholic Beverages.
Last year, Europe exported over $2,193 billion worth of products. Its largest exports markets are the USA (18.2% of the EU exports), the United Kingdom (13%), China (10.5% of Exports), Switzerland (7.4% of the EU’s exported goods), and Russia (4.1% of exports).
Since 2004, TCI has been assisting its clients to buy products from China. However, as demands from International Buyers change, so too does our services. Today, buyers in the UK and Europe are looking to source products that require shorter delivery times and lower costs. TCI launched its Global Sourcing Agency Services for Turkey, Spain, Portugal, Europe and India to meet these needs. We work with companies of all sizes, from small family firms to large global giants.
