The existence of China trading company and China sourcing agents is due to the fact that there are numerous manufactures who vary in the capability of export, understanding of the global market, domestic business performances and foreign language skills, etc. The global market requires a role to bridge the gap between international buyers and manufacturers. However, while there are countless buyers (consciously or unconsciously) dealing with trading companies, some buyers especially those with specific technical requirement prefer to hire a China Sourcing agent or a local service providers like Shenzhen sourcing agent. Why do they shift from China trading company to a China sourcing agent? Or perhaps considering someone who are from the local area like a Shenzhen sourcing agent?
