As a result of our global coverage, one of the most popular strategies our client pursues is a China Plus One (C+1) Sourcing Strategy. This strategy is not new but has become much more important in recent years due to tariffs, global political challenges, and the pandemic. Its key lies in conducting a multi-country vendor search to find other competitive markets that meet your quality and production requirements either as an alternative or backup to China. The goal here is to reduce the risk of over relying on a single country for sourcing and manufacturing.

Our role is to facilitate this process and ensure your parts and products are produced at a competitive rate and with an appropriate level of quality assurance. We work together with you to find the right supplier in the right country and then structure the relationship to ensure the best possible relationship stability and product quality in your China Plus One supply chain.

At EDS International, our main objective with our is to empower your business with the knowledge, expertise, and support necessary to strategically diversify your supply chain, mitigate risks, optimize costs, access new markets, enhance flexibility, and tap into local expertise.

We aim to guide you in navigating the complexities of expanding operations to multiple countries, enabling you to establish resilient supply chains, capitalize on emerging business opportunities, and achieve long-term success in an increasingly dynamic and competitive global landscape.
