If you purchasing regular goods, no need to customize logo, and neutral packaging is accepted, delivery time is about 7-10 days, or even shorter; if you need to develop your own company’s brand, after confirming the pre-production samples and confirming the order, production usually takes around 30 days.
  • Because suppliers need quantity to calculate their products production cost. The cost mainly includes material purchasing costs, production labor costs, inland shipping costs etc. Your order quantity determines whether the factory will accept your order, especially for products that require custom logos. Of course, if the customer is willing to pay extra costs and has sincere long-term cooperation, the factory will sometimes agree to support one more new customer.


         Take the textile industry as an example:


  • Material purchasing cost: Product suppliers need to confirm the cost of purchasing materials based on the order quantity. Because generally material suppliers have no inventory of special materials or high price materials (Capital Reduction), they are all produced according to confirmed orders, so there will be a minimum quantity requirement for start-up production. The smaller the quantity, the higher the start-up cost and the higher the material price.


  • Production labor cost: The product supplier estimates the number of machines, the number of workers, and the production time that need to be arranged according to the order quantity to calculate the cost, because the order is operated in a group assembly line, and each worker does one process, and finally combines it into a finished product. For an order, whether the quantity is 1,000 or 3,000, the material procurement process takes the same time. The smaller the order quantity, the higher the average cost.


  • Inland shipping cost: The shipping cost from the factory to the port warehouse or airport warehouse, and the local freight forwarder’s export customs declaration operation cost. The transportation company has a starting price, and sets different unit prices according to the total volume of the goods. The average transportation cost is higher for orders with small quantities.
