Sofeast Overview

Chinese free trade zones like that in Pingshan, Shenzhen where our facility is located usually offer specific benefits for overseas buyers:

  • Duty-free importing (including goods received from overseas, repaired, and shipped out again)
  • Less paperwork and bureaucracy leading to faster delivery times
  • A perfect base for China fulfillment
  • Ready-made location for RMA, repair, and rework activities

Essentially, you can use a facility in this kind of location to reduce your fulfillment, QA, and logistics costs.

Category: Sofeast 3PL

Our free trade zone facility primarily provides repair, packing, & fulfillment solutions.

It is a warehousing facility near the Yantian container port which has low or no duties to pay so you can take advantage of it to receive your goods (from local suppliers or overseas) for inspection & repair, packing, warehousing, and/or fulfillment.

This makes it perfect for logistics, fulfillment, final inspections, and repair activities (as products with issues can be dealt with in China before shipping to you OR at least without needing to pay import duties to return them to your supplier from your location).

We provide the following affordable solutions:

Here’s a quick summary of when Sofeast clients will benefit from using the Free Trade Zone facility:

  • When some/all of the components come from outside mainland China. They can be stored, assembled, packed, and shipped out, without technically being ‘imported’ into China at any point.
  • When the supplier can only handle a simple approach (get paid, process the export documentation, nothing else), but there is still a lot to do in China — for example shipping the goods in several batches to different countries in different phases, keeping some cartons there for some time (in a secure environment, and ready to be shipped out), etc.
Category: Sofeast 3PL

Your suppliers will do the export, just like if they shipped their goods to you in FOB terms.
By the way, that means their products’ quality needs to be confirmed before they bring us the products. If we receive a batch of defective products, it can be very hard to send them back. Let us know if you need quality control services to confirm quality.

It is possible, but not always easy. Please give us the details of your product and we will confirm.
We usually do drop shipping from our Dongguan facility, not from our Shenzhen facility.

Category: Sofeast 3PL

There are 2 cases.

Materials coming from outside mainland China

These MUST be sent by following these rules:

  • Do no use express courier.
  • Use only air freight (to Shenzhen or HK airport) or ocean freight (to HK port only).

Materials coming from mainland China

These have to be exported by your supplier (it means your supplier needs to complete all export formalities) and to be delivered FOB Pingshan.

The best way to describe how Sofeast can help you with fulfilment, including warehousing, is to look at it in a visual format:

Graphic to explain the types of services we provide related to warehousing and fulfilment

You have parts or products coming in from your suppliers to either of our facilities (either in the Sofeast  Shenzhen Free Trade Zone facility or the Agilian Technology facility in Dongguan, near Shenzhen airport).

Then these services may be appropriate in the order you’d use them from warehousing through to them being shipped out to you (or your customers).

The differences between Sofeast’s Free Trade Zone facility in Shenzhen and Dongguan fulfilment center are a matter of location and regulations.

We offer similar services at each, but the FTZ facility is classed as outside of China, so when receiving goods they attract less red tape as they’re never imported into China, for example.

 

Diagram showing the difference between Sofeast's FTZ facility and mainland Dongguan facility for warehousing and fulfilment

FTZ Facility

Maintaining a facility in the FTZ is helpful for our customers for the following reasons:

  • Ability to collect goods from your suppliers and flexibility to ship them when and where you need
  • No duties to pay for goods coming from outside China, which allows us to pack them together with goods from China and ship them all together
  • Ease of receiving goods from overseas for repairing, and shipped then out again
  • Less paperwork and faster turnaround in some situations

For these reasons, it is the ideal location for a fulfillment center in certain situations. 

It is not a good fit for drop shipping or if you need a quality gate that filters bad quality out. However, we do these well in Dongguan.

 

Dongguan fulfilment center

We provide the following services in Dongguan:

  • Warehousing
  • Product inspections
  • Rework
  • Label & pack
  • Consolidation
  • Shipping
  • Dropshipping

Due to being within Mainland China it is a better location for handling dropshipping, but is not preferable to the FTZ facility if you plan to ship goods to us in China to be repaired or reworked and then shipped again.

A section of our warehouses is temperature and humidity-controlled. Sensitive materials such as lithium batteries and other electronic materials are kept between 20 and 27 degrees C. (Highest cost applies when materials need to be controlled this way.)

We try to be flexible on MOQs as we work with businesses that place both small and large orders.

For kitting and assembly we have an MOQ of at least 500 pieces per batch of products. If under 500pcs, we have an extra fixed cost of $300 for setup.

For dropshipping we have an MOQ of 500pcs per batch at least for dropshipping projects.

For co-packing, product repair and rework, and fulfillment, if an order is less than 1,000 pieces it’s unlikely we’ll be able to take this job.

The differences between Sofeast’s Free Trade Zone facility in Shenzhen and Dongguan fulfilment center are a matter of location and regulations.

We offer similar services at each, but the FTZ facility is classed as outside of China, so when receiving goods they attract less red tape as they’re never imported into China, for example.

FTZ Facility

Maintaining a facility in the FTZ is helpful for our customers for the following reasons:

  • Ability to collect goods from your suppliers and flexibility to ship them when and where you need
  • No duties to pay for goods coming from outside China, which allows us to pack them together with goods from China and ship them all together
  • Ease of receiving goods from overseas for repairing, and shipped then out again
  • Less paperwork and faster turnaround in some situations

For these reasons, it is the ideal location for a fulfillment center in certain situations. 

It is not a good fit for drop shipping or if you need a quality gate that filters bad quality out. However, we do these well in Dongguan.

 

Dongguan fulfilment center

We provide the following services in Dongguan:

  • Warehousing
  • Product inspections
  • Rework
  • Label & pack
  • Consolidation
  • Shipping
  • Dropshipping

Due to being within Mainland China it is a better location for handling dropshipping, but is not preferable to the FTZ facility if you plan to ship goods to us in China to be repaired or reworked and then shipped again.

Here’s an explanation of how your suppliers can send components or products to either our Dongguan facility within China or export to our Shenzhen Free Trade Zone facility, the services we provide, and then where the finished goods are sent by us.

Read this page to explore how it all works.

In these scenarios it is better to use our Dongguan fulfillment center:

  1. If we find quality issues with materials/components/products received from your supplier/s and you want us to be able to send them back to them.
  2. You need us to dropship products directly to your customers in various locations.

You can see the difference between the two facilities on this page about our 3PL facilities.

A section of our warehouses is temperature and humidity-controlled. Sensitive materials such as lithium batteries and other electronic materials are kept between 20 and 27 degrees C. (Highest cost applies when materials need to be controlled this way.)

We try to be flexible on MOQs as we work with businesses that place both small and large orders.

For kitting and assembly we have an MOQ of at least 500 pieces per batch of products. If under 500pcs, we have an extra fixed cost of $300 for setup.

For dropshipping we have an MOQ of 500pcs per batch at least for dropshipping projects.

For co-packing, product repair and rework, and fulfillment, if an order is less than 1,000 pieces it’s unlikely we’ll be able to take this job.

Quality Consulting

Chinese free trade zones like that in Pingshan, Shenzhen where our facility is located usually offer specific benefits for overseas buyers:

  • Duty-free importing (including goods received from overseas, repaired, and shipped out again)
  • Less paperwork and bureaucracy leading to faster delivery times
  • A perfect base for China fulfillment
  • Ready-made location for RMA, repair, and rework activities

Essentially, you can use a facility in this kind of location to reduce your fulfillment, QA, and logistics costs.

Learn more about the zone and the solutions we offer there by visiting our page: Repair, Packing, & Fulfillment Solutions in the Shenzhen Free Trade Zone

 

Category: Sofeast 3PL

Our free trade zone facility primarily provides repair, packing, & fulfillment solutions.

It is a warehousing facility near the Yantian container port which has low or no duties to pay so you can take advantage of it to receive your goods (from local suppliers or overseas) for inspection & repair, packing, warehousing, and/or fulfillment.

This makes it perfect for logistics, fulfillment, final inspections, and repair activities (as products with issues can be dealt with in China before shipping to you OR at least without needing to pay import duties to return them to your supplier from your location).

We provide the following affordable solutions:

For even more information, watch this video.

Category: Sofeast 3PL

Here’s a quick summary of when Sofeast clients will benefit from using the Free Trade Zone facility:

  • When some/all of the components come from outside mainland China. They can be stored, assembled, packed, and shipped out, without technically being ‘imported’ into China at any point.
  • When the supplier can only handle a simple approach (get paid, process the export documentation, nothing else), but there is still a lot to do in China — for example shipping the goods in several batches to different countries in different phases, keeping some cartons there for some time (in a secure environment, and ready to be shipped out), etc.
Category: Sofeast 3PL

Your suppliers will do the export, just like if they shipped their goods to you in FOB terms.
By the way, that means their products’ quality needs to be confirmed before they bring us the products. If we receive a batch of defective products, it can be very hard to send them back. Let us know if you need quality control services to confirm quality.

Category: Sofeast 3PL

It is possible, but not always easy. Please give us the details of your product and we will confirm.
We usually do drop shipping from our Dongguan facility, not from our Shenzhen facility.

Category: Sofeast 3PL

There are 2 cases.

Materials coming from outside mainland China

These MUST be sent by following these rules:

  • Do no use express courier.
  • Use only air freight (to Shenzhen or HK airport) or ocean freight (to HK port only).

Materials coming from mainland China

These have to be exported by your supplier (it means your supplier needs to complete all export formalities) and to be delivered FOB Pingshan.

The best way to describe how Sofeast can help you with fulfilment, including warehousing, is to look at it in a visual format:

Graphic to explain the types of services we provide related to warehousing and fulfilment

You have parts or products coming in from your suppliers to either of our facilities (either in the Sofeast  Shenzhen Free Trade Zone facility or the Agilian Technology facility in Dongguan, near Shenzhen airport).

Then these services may be appropriate in the order you’d use them from warehousing through to them being shipped out to you (or your customers).

  • Less paperwork and bureaucracy leading to faster delivery times
  • A perfect base for China fulfillment
  • Ready-made location for RMA, repair, and rework activities

Essentially, you can use a facility in this kind of location to reduce your fulfillment, QA, and logistics costs.

Category: Sofeast 3PL

Our free trade zone facility primarily provides repair, packing, & fulfillment solutions.

It is a warehousing facility near the Yantian container port which has low or no duties to pay so you can take advantage of it to receive your goods (from local suppliers or overseas) for inspection & repair, packing, warehousing, and/or fulfillment.

This makes it perfect for logistics, fulfillment, final inspections, and repair activities (as products with issues can be dealt with in China before shipping to you OR at least without needing to pay import duties to return them to your supplier from your location).

We provide the following affordable solutions:

Here’s a quick summary of when Sofeast clients will benefit from using the Free Trade Zone facility:

  • When some/all of the components come from outside mainland China. They can be stored, assembled, packed, and shipped out, without technically being ‘imported’ into China at any point.
  • When the supplier can only handle a simple approach (get paid, process the export documentation, nothing else), but there is still a lot to do in China — for example shipping the goods in several batches to different countries in different phases, keeping some cartons there for some time (in a secure environment, and ready to be shipped out), etc.
Category: Sofeast 3PL

Your suppliers will do the export, just like if they shipped their goods to you in FOB terms.
By the way, that means their products’ quality needs to be confirmed before they bring us the products. If we receive a batch of defective products, it can be very hard to send them back. Let us know if you need quality control services to confirm quality.

It is possible, but not always easy. Please give us the details of your product and we will confirm.
We usually do drop shipping from our Dongguan facility, not from our Shenzhen facility.

Category: Sofeast 3PL

There are 2 cases.

Materials coming from outside mainland China

These MUST be sent by following these rules:

  • Do no use express courier.
  • Use only air freight (to Shenzhen or HK airport) or ocean freight (to HK port only).

Materials coming from mainland China

These have to be exported by your supplier (it means your supplier needs to complete all export formalities) and to be delivered FOB Pingshan.

The best way to describe how Sofeast can help you with fulfilment, including warehousing, is to look at it in a visual format:

Graphic to explain the types of services we provide related to warehousing and fulfilment

You have parts or products coming in from your suppliers to either of our facilities (either in the Sofeast  Shenzhen Free Trade Zone facility or the Agilian Technology facility in Dongguan, near Shenzhen airport).

Then these services may be appropriate in the order you’d use them from warehousing through to them being shipped out to you (or your customers).

The differences between Sofeast’s Free Trade Zone facility in Shenzhen and Dongguan fulfilment center are a matter of location and regulations.

We offer similar services at each, but the FTZ facility is classed as outside of China, so when receiving goods they attract less red tape as they’re never imported into China, for example.

 

Diagram showing the difference between Sofeast's FTZ facility and mainland Dongguan facility for warehousing and fulfilment

FTZ Facility

Maintaining a facility in the FTZ is helpful for our customers for the following reasons:

  • Ability to collect goods from your suppliers and flexibility to ship them when and where you need
  • No duties to pay for goods coming from outside China, which allows us to pack them together with goods from China and ship them all together
  • Ease of receiving goods from overseas for repairing, and shipped then out again
  • Less paperwork and faster turnaround in some situations

For these reasons, it is the ideal location for a fulfillment center in certain situations. 

It is not a good fit for drop shipping or if you need a quality gate that filters bad quality out. However, we do these well in Dongguan.

 

Dongguan fulfilment center

We provide the following services in Dongguan:

  • Warehousing
  • Product inspections
  • Rework
  • Label & pack
  • Consolidation
  • Shipping
  • Dropshipping

Due to being within Mainland China it is a better location for handling dropshipping, but is not preferable to the FTZ facility if you plan to ship goods to us in China to be repaired or reworked and then shipped again.

In these scenarios it is better to use our Dongguan fulfillment center:

  1. If we find quality issues with materials/components/products received from your supplier/s and you want us to be able to send them back to them.
  2. You need us to dropship products directly to your customers in various locations.

A section of our warehouses is temperature and humidity-controlled. Sensitive materials such as lithium batteries and other electronic materials are kept between 20 and 27 degrees C. (Highest cost applies when materials need to be controlled this way.)

We try to be flexible on MOQs as we work with businesses that place both small and large orders.

For kitting and assembly we have an MOQ of at least 500 pieces per batch of products. If under 500pcs, we have an extra fixed cost of $300 for setup.

For dropshipping we have an MOQ of 500pcs per batch at least for dropshipping projects.

For co-packing, product repair and rework, and fulfillment, if an order is less than 1,000 pieces it’s unlikely we’ll be able to take this job.
