Whether you’re sourcing from or selling to Greater China, running your local supply chain efficiently requires on-site presence and on-time action. Fiducia’s Trade & Technology Team acts on your behalf to plan, coordinate, and run your sourcing and distribution operations when you lack the local resources or know-how.
Our cross-location team includes highly specialised import/export consultants, project managers, logistics and documentation specialists, and merchandisers who guarantee a timely and hassle-free journey for your products.
Our trade services are boosted by Fiducia’s unique ERP and digital capabilities. We integrate the entire order-to-cash (OTC) process – including sales, purchase, inventory, logistics, invoicing, and payment – into a single platform that gives clients a full overview and control over the workflows we manage. We design the platform according to the requirements of your headquarter and local subsidiaries.
The Fiducia ERP System is open to connect with a range of external systems and our in-house application team has the experience of developing interfaces with SAP, Dynamics NAV, Dynamics AX, Web-based ordering systems, 3PL and cloud-based systems.
We also use a range of supply chain management software and digital tools (Slack, Microsoft Team, Skype for Business, etc) to increase speed and enhance collaboration among different parties involved in the supply chain.
