Why you need an Agent?

We all expect to work directly with the supplier, and expect the manufacturer can give us the best quality products and or services, actually, there will have much more trouble than we thought, especially working in Vietnam: 1. Sourcing is really a time consuming process. 2. The quality of the goods is of major concern. 3. Suppliers are not so honest and responsible as you thought. 4. Inexperienced suppliers causes big problems on documents, shipping etc. 5. Differences between languages and cultures are also a big difficulties when working in Vietnam. Ineffective communication may leads to slow, unprofessional or even irrelevant response from the suppliers.
