BANGKOK GARMENT AS WELL AS ACTING

BUYING AGENTS OR JUST SHIPPING AGENTS

We are DFT (Dept of Foreign Trade)

affiliated for Germany and can get COs fromDFT for all exports if we are the buyer for you

Qu: SOURCING & QUALITY CONTROL:

For all foreigners using our services we can act as buying agents for you; source anything in Thailand for you and do the packing and shipping. We now have our packing facilities in Bangkok and we access our own FCL containers. AS AT 2016 WE HAVE 195x 40ft Shipping CONTAINERS FOR SALE WHICH ARE 40FT FCL & we are the only Company who have these containers for sale. You buy one you own it and you see them on our portal www.asiatradingonline.com or [ Home ]

It is vitally important to have someone oversee all your consignments and we can do this and guide you. If when importing into your country and you have Customs problems we can help solve them and we are quick to help. No other agents can do this as they must go through a shipping company and this takes days whereas our affilitaions allows us quick access. Min sourcing is 1cbm OR 45KGS on AIRFREIGHT OR UPS but the more you send the cheaper you will get. We advise all garment wholesalers and retailers to send pics of what they have bought and where they have bought with garments so invoices and shops addresses and telephone numbers are very important as we can follow up on any mistakes for you.

Our staff are professionals and if you buy an item for 200baht chances are we can get cheaper for you. The idea is send your pics and we can then buy close to what you want. Pictures are important for our staff as we know many outlets and our Thai staff can get better deals far cheaper than any foreigner can get. We do NOT add this cost on to you unlike other agents in Bangkok as we want your ongoing business but the beauty about working with us--you save time and expense. We also have good references and specialize in SHIPPING, EXPORTS, BUYING AND WHOLESALE ONLY.

We are also based in Chiangmai and can access any manufacturers for customers from tiles to furniture; ceramics and thai handicrafts whatever overseas companies want.

Remember we are also DFT ( Dept of Foreign Trade) affiliated for Germany and can get COs (certificate of Origin) from DFT for all exports if we are the buyer for you.

Our companies are fully registered in Thailand:

SEAsia Trading Post Co Ltd;

KPS International Trade Co Ltd;

Speed cargo Co Ltd.

Qu: BUYING:

Yes we even buy on your behalf. Our charges are 5- 10% commission on products across the board if we buy for you but we can find the factories and offer a better buying rate then you can find yourself so the commission can canel out if say you are buying. Remember time and money you save using our services. We also QC all products and make sure you get on time & any wrongs in your shipment we make right plus we do all the paperwork at our depot for you. We do not use other Shipping companies as we are a shipping company so this saves you money other sourcing agents will charge on top. You can buy some garments cheaper yourself in Thailand which is fine by us as that saves you costs. Using our services we work direct with factories and our Thai buyers can get value for money prices on other garments better than a foreigner can get so buying in bulk is what we do best. see www.pattayashipping.com and www.bangkokshipping.com so we make sure what you order is what you get and that if you have a problem we will solve for you.

Qu: HOW WE WORK: We export for any foreign client and charge 5-15 baht on the stock items only but remember we can get cheaper than you purchased so that makes a difference. If you buy yourself and allow us to send we only charge a packing fee which is normal for you. If we have the wrong items we charge to replace for you only & lets face it what you pay here is a lot cheaper than you think. All shipping is across the board and we find the cheapest effective shipping rate for all customers; oversee each shipment; packing; transport, customs etc.. This saves you time expenses coming to Bangkok. We also source any other products and have Thai team who find for you. If wanting to come to Bangkok to meet us we require you to sign contract form with us if you wish to utilize our excellent services. We cannot show you factories eg clothing factories unless you are buying in the 10s of 1000s and we will support those who use our services. We are not a stepping stone of information to show people factory shops and do charge for this service if not wanting to use our services.

OUR CUSTOMER BASE: Check out our customers: Our biggest German customer buys FCL loads per 3 month period from us just in T Shirt and have been our customers for over 6 years now. We also ship to Canada, NZ, Bulgaria & South America and UK to Russia so allow us to be your agent playing safe yet we are fast to source and send to you.

We work for XTREMESTREET WEAR in Brisbane Australia & are buyers for this Australian company. See the success they have made on the Australian Garment market and check one of their many vans below[ Xtremestreetwear ] These are our biggest garment customers and we can be your agent as well. It costs you nothing but we QC and run everything for you in Thailand without you being here. We can offer you more than you think with all our in house services.

Qu: HAVING YOUR DESIGNS MADE: We no longer accept samples to make on behalf of customers unless for T shirts. ONLY on receipt of 3000 baht for our time to have made & if you are serious. We make part refund once we have firm orders. If you have own labels you must pay for the block first if under 600pcs for T shirts --over 600 pcs the block is free per design.  Each colour for T shirts is 300baht up front payment. Samples are not made in one week and the factories charge one off prices which are higher than normal just like a tailor. Samples made one off will be based higher for the work involved SO PLEASE if you want to start your own label we only assist those who want bulk, are serious and understand what one must do. To have your own tags made min in 500 doz and again need sizes, colours, what material and design- again pics or sketches needed and lease time 1 week.  

Qu: FACTORIES: We no longer assist those who want us to take them to factories. All major factories require large volumes and are not interested in small volumes therefore orders over 1x 40ft FCL loads and you must be an established company. All our catalogues are on our website and we are Internet based wholesale only no retail so do not ask us where the factories are as we cannot take anyone. In Thailand large factories you must have invitation and volumes are normally 5-10000 pcs above plus they only detail with companies. Most small factories will not show customers their factories due to machine copying & processes being copied.

Qu: FACTORIES & Buying Garments: We work on behalf of Thailand Garment companies and market for them. All products we list come direct from the factories. Yes you can buy some lines cheaper if you know where to buy and come to Thailand yourself but our aim is to supply those who cannot come here with good prices, good backup and knowing what they buy is what they get. Basically we make sure what you order is what you get. We also back up with full money back guarantee if you are not happy with any items we send and as said we do all the documents you may need. Our commissions are on the garment prices but this allows convenience to buyers wishing to purchase products via us. We also can get a better deal than you; we add free samples of what you like & can plus we save you the hassle of coming to Thailand.

Qu: SAMPLES AND CATALOGUES: We no longer SEND catalogues as prices change often and styles. Everything is on our website and we try to update often. Samples are based on our rates. Some samples we do not send & T shirts are based 4pcs @ 4000 baht including shipping. If it sounds too high then don't ask us as we are not a retail shop. If we know you wish samples and are genuine to purchase we will rebate you on your next order for sure. All designs of what we sell are on the website. We do allow Western Union & all payment via TT to our account + 500 baht clearance fee. NO Credit cards as paypal take 3 weeks and the costs to USA then to Thailand are around $US250. If you want DHL then we can quote you and TT must be paid before we send.

Qu: BUY YOURSELF AND LET US SHIP AND PACK FOR YOU: We assist you as our Shipping Company is based in Pratunam on Soi 15 Petchaburi. Its easy and quicl as all our airfreight can be prebooked for you and out within 1-2 days. Check out the way to do this and have the shops send on your behalf to us [ Buying & Packing ]

Qu: HAVING CLOTHING SAMPLES MADE: Please noteWE ARE NOT A SPECIALIST garment maker. We will only make if bulk orders eg T shirts etc. We can make big sizes up to 6XXL but note min order is 100 pcs. We can send a sample once we are paid a retainer to cover sample cost and postage. LABELS WE ONLY MAKE IF CLIENTS BUY THRU US.

Qu: IF WE BUY YOU SHIP: We will deliver to your shipper if you do not use our shipping services. However we only deliver and do not prepare paper work apart from Packing list of what we deliver. It is in your interest to check your shipper as some in Bangkok are not registered and there is no comeback on us. It may be you are offered a cheaper shipping quote but this does not mean you will get your goods at that price. Beware of jubious shipping companies and sourcing agents in Thailand as some offer you the wordl but do not have FEQs like we do. Also we are one of the oldest Interent companies established with credentials.

Qu: T SHIRTS: We have manufactured the hottest Collection of T shirts on the Thailand market. Check catalogues. All sizes sold worldwide  these are our latest T shirts range. up to XL sizes with SP 6XL. We ONLY MAKE TO ORDER--NO STOCK LISTS ARE AVAILABLE due to people changing so factories will not supply small numbers so do not ask us for stock lists as too many hassles in the past with clients changing & factories having to take back after recount. Payments by TT transfer airfreight min 45kgs airfreight ASSORTED TSHIRTS approx 200 T shirts = 45 kgs min airfreight min is 10 per size. 550 - 800pcs =1cbm seafreight depending on sizes purchased from us.If our shipping costs are too high and you want delivered to your shipping agent we will send to that agent.

Qu: PROFORMA INVOICES: We always send out a Proforma Invoice which will tell you all the shipping and transactions costs. These invoices if air freight we do reserve the right to add the costs of changed air freight per kg rates as and when they change. As some of our exports may take 1-2 months to make and pack please note this change. AT THE MOMENT AIR FREIGHT RATES CHANGES VERY WEEK

Qu: HOW DO YOU GUARANTEE PRODUCTS WHEN WE PAY

As our company is fully licensed in Thailand we must abide by the rules set by the Thailand Customs.

Qu: SHOULD ONE BUY OFF UNREGISTERED COMPANIES?

No. You have no comeback for return of monies & you purchase at your own risk. Entirely up to you but many Internet Thai websites are not tax paying Thai Companies. Some internet websites in Thailand are brokerage fronts who are not true manufacturers with Thai Limited Companies. Please ask them for their status before paying monies over. It is illegal for foreigners in Thailand to use Internet websites as this is deemed work as well as income. If you pay and not receive your goods you have no guarantee to receive a refund or goods so only use licensed Companies for all purchases. If in doubt ask your nearest Royal Thai Embassy-Trade Dept or Commerce dept & Chamber of commerce in your country.

Qu: WHAT IF THE PRODUCTS DO NOT ARRIVE:

We insure or you can arrange this with your consignments your end. There is a $150 limitation on seafreight cargo but we will send CIF= cost /insurance/freight costs or FOB= free on board. Insurance is levied @ 1.5% of freight cargo value. We always send tracking number of your shipment so you can follow. If we do not abide by our policies you have every right to file a complaint to your nearest Royal Thailand Embassy. It is not in our interests as we lose more than you.  It is up to you to notify us if any discrepancies as well as any refunds with 3 months otherwise we reserve the right to keep.

No. But again if you lose don't blame us! as we just told you.

Qu: WHAT ABOUT INSURANCE:

We insure or you can arrange this with your consignments your end. Most goods FCL if packed right do not need to be covered but again over to you. look at 1.5-1.5% of the value of when insuring your goods and breakables. eg a motorcycle that you want insured for 80,000baht will cost approx 350baht insurance.

Qu: THAILAND EXPORTS:

Please note some items may have quotas so find this out in your country first. Quota payments which must be made in Thailand before sending. All mail DHL, Fedex etc is now opened and copied items of clothing are now not allowed to be sent out in breach of copyright infringements. 

Qu: EXPORTING:

All freight forwarders offer on spot quotations which will vary if any changes to government fees or other unforseen circumstances. This includes the airlines for air freight but we are told at least 2 weeks ahead on any price increase. Again we reserve the right to change quotations with these added expenses as and when they occur. We now have the ability to book our containers direct off the shipping lines for our customers. In USA now each additional item in a FCL the price for that FCL increases.

Qu: CLEARING COSTS IN YOUR COUNTRY

All freight airfreight you can call an agent in your country to clear or you go yourself once we send you the documents via email. Its easy and saves you costs as some Western countries charge a straight $500 fee for just doing the clearing. For seafreight this will depend on how big your shipment is and if wood products and crates then you need Agriculture clearance as well as wharf fees, Clearing costs and customs fees on top. It varies enormously so ask in your country at Customs as well as a shipping agents for clearing costs.

Qu: DOOR TO DOOR:

Is not cheap so again ask an agent in your country for full costs. Sometimes in say NZ they charge $2.79 per km just to deleiver so if you can pick up yourself or ask a transport company to do cheaper then that will save costs.

Qu: DOCUMENTATION:

All freight DOCUMENTS we handle ourselves and our staff are very quick and we are experienced in every situation that may come up. This is importnat. Watch out for sourcing agents who want fee then once sent to you there is no after service help unless you pay. Using us we do not charge you. Please note TT Bank charges in both your country & Thailand can change overnight and quotes using proforma invoices are only valid for 2 weeks and liable to change due to airline charges. Once Proforma Invoice is issued it is up to you to pay via TT the included charges then we can send you the shipment.

Qu: SHIPMENTS HELD:

All freight once payment TT is cleared in our Thailand Bank. If you are not happy you can have your own agent send for you or another agent. We are happy to send your shipment to that agent. Charges are 500 baht min depending on CBM sizes & it is your responsibility once sent.
