Tradegood, the B2B sourcing community developed by Intertek that connects responsible buyers and trusted suppliers, has enhanced its public website (http://www.tradegood.com) with proprietary sourcing tools now available world buyers and purchasers, bringing them to verified suppliers at no cost.
From now on, buyers can post their sourcing requests on the Tradegood website to locate manufacturers who make what they need and whom they can trust—at anytime, anywhere. Upon receiving sourcing requests, Tradegood specialists will handle the rest on behalf of buyers, including data consolidation, screening of compatible suppliers and meeting or factory-visit arrangement if needed.
Alternatively, buyers can look up suppliers according to product category. Search results provide a clear overview of corporate profiles that contain verified data on business information, design capability, product profile, and compliance and licensing. Currently the eight most popular product categories are: Clothing, Clothing Accessories, Bags/Cases, Apparel Material Supply, Textiles/Home Textiles/Coat Hangers, Footwear & Parts, Printing & Packaging and Others.
