Asia, especially China, is often referred to as the "world's factory," given its huge manufacturing and export base. However, the unexpected shutdown during the Covid-19 outbreak caused havoc and severe disruptions to global supply chains management at such an unprecedented scale, affecting most industries with long delays and bottlenecks in direct imports from China and Asia.
From our experience working with Chinese manufacturers, the keys to overcome challenges brought by supply chain disruptions are communication and control. At Crayfish.io, we provide timely on-the-ground assistance to solve your supply chain problems by our billingual sourcing agents, covering from sourcing in china, communication and negotiation with your suppliers in their native language, arranging factory audit, goods inspection before shipment and liaising with selected forwarders to provide you better control.
If China is still your first choice for manufacturing after your supply chain strategy review, then we can help you find the right manufacturer, by carrying out technical evaluation, and support you with prototyping, manufacturing design, component supply chain, and logistics management. We search and select the manufacturing partner who can produce or supply your product with the right skillset, quality and scale.
But if you are looking to diversify your supply chain to reduce the risk of future disruptions, we can evaluate options of production in a number of cost competitive countries including Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines, followed by local support to help you establish the manufacturing partnership.
We offer a range of standard services which you can purchase to suit your requirements. However, if you need more tailored solutions, we are always happy to discuss how we could help you. Please get in touch and book a free initial consultation.

Companies, whatever their size or sector, need to have a China strategy in place if they are going to take advantage of the many opportunities the Chinese market presents. That is the message highlighted by Crayfish Founder and CEO Ting Zhang in an article in Cambridge Independent this week., where she stresses the importance of such strategy, especially in the light of Brexit.
In 2006, as an upcoming Chinese business specialist, Ting Zhang was invited by Bocconi University in Milan to give a guest lecture about China’s technology licensing, and to share her experience working with tech firms in the UK.
China is often referred to as the "world's factory," given its huge manufacturing and export base. However, whether the country can maintain that status going forward is now being thrown into question after the unexpected shutdown during the Covid-19 outbreak caused havoc and severe disruptions to global supply chains network.
