Risks and challenges

We looked at every possible nook and cranny to best pair with how we want our designer plates to be made available. They not only had to look good but also affordable and durable for everyday use and special occasions. Because it's made of porcelain, these plates are considered fragile and heavy which is also equivalent to logistics nightmare.

Finding the right factory to work with was challenge #1. We needed a reliable manufacturer, who was patient enough to answer every one of our questions (this took 2 months), who was equipped with great experience and knowledge of the base product we wanted to produce and who understood well enough how we wanted our plates to be portrayed. -- Yes! We found an extremely reliable and patient manufacturer.

Challenge #2. Because we wanted these plates to not only be affordable and durable but also made available to as many people we can reach out to, we had to go on a mission to find the right fulfilment company, a company with worldwide warehouses. After 4 months of hunting, emails, conference calls, webinars and odd hour phone calls, we found the perfect company. They have warehouses all over the world and are also very understanding and extremely patient to figure out which warehouse/scenarios best suits us.

Challenge #3. Once we've locked in the fulfilment portion, we had to deal with a haystack of custom mess. The three countries we've decided to send our shipment to meant tons of complicating shipping terms and paper work. Finding the perfect customs broker thus became our biggest challenge. This person had to be experienced, reliable, patient enough to answer questions, putting every shipping language into laymen terms and had to have extensive knowledgable of the industry. Very thankfully, we found one that stood out of the crowd. They are knowledgable and beyond efficient enough to give us all the custom knowledge we needed.

After a little more than 6 months, we not only increased our knowledge with international logistics but secured great working relationships with professionals who will deliver these dinnerware to your door step in mint condition.
