        A) Export Co-ordination and Vendor Management
        Grand Dragon recognise that visibility and effective control of origin activities such as the timing of export shipments, choice of carrier and equipment, and vendor compliance with overseas customers’ requirements are important in order to optimise inbound flows and achieve cost-efficiency in the end to end supply chain.
        Multiple vendors and sourcing origins, time zone differences, language barriers, varying rules and regulations in China, as well as increasingly tighter lead times and production schedules complicate the export coordination process.
        Grand Dragon is involved in the export coordination process, we manage the flow of products, information and documentation between overseas customers and their vendors and nominated carrier(s) according to agreed client-specific Standard Operating Procedures.
         
        B) Buyer Consolidation
        Buyer consolidation a key enabler for the creation of a strong, cost-effective supply chain model, which can demonstrate reduction in total logistics costs and support inventory optimisation and reduction.
        A consolidation program enables overseas customer to combine products from multiple vendors at a particular origin into one full load container for shipment. Typical situations include:
        1. Vendor books small quantity which is insufficient to fill a container.
        2. Vendor has left-over quantities that are insufficient to fill an additional container.
        3. Vendor does not have a loading facility at his premises.
        4. Buyer want to reduce number of 20’containers.
        5. Buyer want to mix product from multiple vendors to optimise in-flow at destination.
        6. Buyer want to reduce order sizes while maintaining cost-efficiency.
        7. Buyer wants to implement e.g. quality assurance, bar-coding or palletisation at origin.
           
        C) Multi-Country Consolidation Service
        If Consignee have multiple shipments from different shippers and origins, Grand Dragon could provide multi-country consolidation service in Free Trade Port in China and consolidate the goods into one full container load FCL shipment, ensuring lower transit costs, fixed transit times, reliable weekly sailings, and smooth connections to the final destination.
        By putting many less-than-container load shipments into more
        Cost-efficient FCL containers, the multi-country consolidation services save time and money:
        1. All shipments arrive on the same day and in the same container.
        2. Buyer gets access to the goods quicker because container yard boxes can be picked up one or two days earlier than container freight station shipments.
        3. There is only one customs entry.
        4. Buyer receive only one container yard container, so do not have to pick up several container freight station shipments.
        5. Buyer pay only one terminal handling charge / documentation fee.
        6. Full container load trucking charges are cheaper than multiple less-than-container load trucking charges.
           
        D) Document Management
        Grand Dragon document management program includes the efficient collection, checking and dispatch of commercial documents (commercial invoice, packing list, certificates, etc.), based on Overseas Customers' specific requirements listed in the SOP.
        In China, Grand Dragon will communicate the document requirements to the vendor and verify at time of document receipt that the vendor has submitted all required documents, in the right quantity and sort order, and within the deadline agreed with overseas customers (often 3-7 days after vessel departure, depending on origin).
        Grand Dragon will arrange document dispatch by courier in accordance with overseas customers’ requirements, e.g. within 24-48 hours of document receipt from vendor or as a consolidated pouch per vessel containing documents from multiple vendors. The details of the document pouch (air waybill number, dispatch date, destination) are available to overseas customers via SCM system.
         
        E) DC By-Pass and Direct to Store Program
        Grand Dragon operates a variety of programs in China that enable customers to by-pass distribution centres at destination and deliver imported goods straight to a regional warehouse, to own stores or to the end customer (e.g. a retailer) upon arrival.
        DC by-pass solutions are a means to address following challenges:
        1. Overseas customers are experiencing capacity constraints at their DC at destination.
        2. Overseas customers want to reduce their destination DC handling costs.
        3. Overseas customers want to reduce their distribution costs.
        4. Overseas customers want to reduce total lead time by removing DC handling time.
        5. Overseas customers want to reduce the risks of their DC becoming a bottleneck during peak season or for promotional items.
           
        F) Origin Warehousing
        Grand Dragon' Origin Warehousing transfers cargo handling and storage from destination to origin, thus providing overseas customers with an origin based distribution center that can reduce, or eliminate, dependency on destination distribution centers.
        The primary reason for an origin warehousing is that overseas customers would like to reduce destination re-handling costs and minimize the utilization of their destination warehouses, either because their destination DCs are over utilized and they need to relieve the overcapacity and/ or the operational costs for maintaining destination DCs are higher than in China. The origin warehousing allows overseas customers to take advantage of greater operational efficiency, by performing the majority of cargo handling in China, close to the manufacturing source, as well as reduced costs. In addition to export, the origin warehousing can be used as an import / re-export facility, enabling multi-origin consolidation.
        Origin Warehousing is an excellent choice for overseas customers who currently handle activities like
        1. Pick and Pack at piece level per store order.
        2. Repacking.
        3. Labeling, ticketing and tagging.
        4. Barcode Scanning.
        5. Palletizing (both wooden, plastic and paper).
        6. Kitting, Assembling and sorting.
        7. Shrink-wrapping.
        8. Slip-Sheet.
        9. Quality Inspection.
           
        By adopting Origin Warehousing service, overseas customers perform all these activities at origin, allowing great opportunities for cost savings due to lower cost levels at China which provides overseas customers with an opportunity to remain cost competitive and become flexible to changing requirements.
