What we do
We help businesses find specific, goods or services. Our clients call upon us, for a number of reasons: the sourcing territory is unknown to them, the needs are very niche, or simply because our expertise makes them save time and money.

Our services are most often called upon for tender preparations, foreign construction projects needing local subcontractors, factory sourcing, overseas talent scouting, temporary supply chain management and transborder event prodction support.
How we do it
We map your sourcing needs and their deadlines. Subsequently, we set up a task-force including local experts, conduct in-depth market research and compile a report, comparing relevant suppliers or partners, and their proposals. Research is done both on-site, and through our call-center, backed by customized sourcing software. Project-specific parameters are then identified allowing for optimal negotiation leverage. Upon selection of your partner, a procurement process is initiated.
The production process is then closely monitored, by measuring KPI’s and tracking milestones. We remain by your side, co-managing the supply chain of your purchased goods and services, until completion of the project. We work with excellent forwarders to get your goods to their destination, whether it be by sea, land or air. Our support often involves field-based presence by our project managers.
