Before we begin to search for a box supplier, Kanary makes sure that we have a full understanding of client needs. This includes confirming whether graphic design services are needed, as well as any other packaging need that may be required (like bags). After Kanary has a firm grasp of what's needed, a search for a supplier begins.
Kanary's supplier search starts with around 30-50 factories, which our experts narrow down based on how well they fit your business. We consider lead times, pricing, communication skills, factory capacity, and general engineering skills that may be required to make boxes. After we narrow down the candidates to 3-5 choices, Kanary starts the sampling and vetting process.
Kanary requests samples of box packaging from factories, and we handle delivery scheduling on your behalf. Our experts help facilitate communication between you and the factory should modifications need to be made, and we consult with you to help you examine samples and determine if additional samples are needed, or if you should just pass on a particular candidate.
For factories that provide adequate samples, Kanary conducts a thorough factory vetting process, making sure that the quality of mass production will meet your expectations, and that any given supplier is trustworthy. Finally, as the final step, Kanary consults with your business to choose the factory that is the best match for your needs.
When mass production begins, Kanary monitors production on-site. Our experts ensure that quality control protocols are followed, and we remain available to respond to problems quickly if and when they arise. Kanary makes sure that your completed boxes are stored correctly while production completes. Then, it's time to prepare your products for sea freight shipping.
Kanary books your container, schedules sea freight shipping, and monitors your delivery during transit. Our experts also make sure that all required customs paperwork is in order, and we can offer general guidance on how to navigate delays in customs if they arise. Once customs is cleared, Kanary schedules domestic shipment to your order's final destination.
