How BMS Helps you Manufacture and Ship your Products On Time

How does BMS Help you Manufacture & Ship Products On Time?

Do you remember all those times your suppliers told you that they wouldn’t be able to ship your order on time? Usually this happens because:

  1. They found defected items during inspection.
  2. They lack manpower to finish the packaging.
  3. They lack materials to complete the production on time.

The problem is, that for many importers, time is money. 

Quality issues can cause numerous delays on production and shipment, and working with a not competent Inspection company will make things even worst!

Branding Manufacturing Services (BMS) will help you improve your import efficiency and prevent quality issues with your supplier before any delays happen, through:

  1. Pre-Production Sample (PPS) Reviewing aka Sample Review
  2. Personalized assistance from your BMS Brand Manager 
  3. Inspections when you and your supplier are ready 
  4. Factory structure process review 

Pre-Production Sample (PPS) Reviewing aka Sample Review

Before placing an order with your supplier, you must first review the product samples. Why? Product samples will be your first opportunity to see if your suppliers understand your requirements.

Without reviewing the product sample, the risk of miscommunication and defective products is very high.

Most importers do not have a team to help them check the product samples in the manufacturing country and need to have the samples shipped overseas. 

In order to save you all this time and money, BMS reviews and tests the product samples for you. This will streamline your process so that your supplier can move forward with the production sooner than expected.

When you book the PPS review service with BMS, we will:

  1. Arrange an inspector to head to your supplier 
  2. Randomly pull the required number of samples as per the Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) in your Purchase Order (PO)
  3. Review the samples as per specification / Technical pack and issue a report
  4. Seal the sample(s) on-site: This is to ensure that the samples reviewed are the same ones that are used for reference.
  5. Test the samples at our partner labs and issue a report of the samples’ compliance with your specific standard. 

By asking your supplier to send you the PPS to review, you give the chance to choose the best-made samples. BMS has its own engineering / inspectors’ team with experience in different product-lines international standards.
