Sourcing Agricultural Machinery: Step-by-Step


Identify Agricultural Machinery Needs

The first step of sourcing agricultural machinery is to determine specifically what kind of machinery you need, as well as the specifications required to match your business needs. We determine if an existing product is a good fit, or if your business needs a customized machine or part of a machine that is a unique fit for your needs.


Begin Supplier Search

After Kanary has the specifics of the machinery you need, we begin our supplier search. We search for 30-50 potentially compatible suppliers, and we narrow that list down based on lead times, pricing, quality of communication, and engineering capabilities. Kanary will move to the next step after we cultivate a short-list of 3-5 quality factory candidates.


Supplier Vetting/Factory Inspection

Like with most heavy machinery, getting a sample of agricultural machinery may not be feasible. Kanary takes special care to vet suppliers and inspect factories when sampling isn't possible, and we check to make sure that a factory is capable of meeting your quality standards. 

Our experts examine quality control standards in place, engineering capabilities, and overall best practices followed by factories to ensure your end-product meets your needs. After vetting suppliers (and making sure the machinery will have proper certifications to be imported), we consult with clients to help make a decision on which suppliers to partner with to move forward.



Once a supplier is chosen, production begins. Kanary supervises production in-person, handling communication with factory managers and addressing production issues as they arise. Our team also enforces industry-standard quality control procedures to make sure that your machinery is made to requested specifications without cutting corners.


Shipment and Customs

After your machinery is complete, Kanary handles shipment. This includes ensuring that your machinery is properly packed for safe shipment, booking shipping containers, and monitoring sea freight shipment while your machinery heads to customs. Once at the port, Kanary supervises customs clearance, and communicates possible issues and delays that may arise.


Final Delivery

After your agricultural machinery has cleared customs, Kanary handles shipment to the final destination. Our team manages domestic freight partners (like truck and train), and once delivered, we remain available to facilitate questions or concerns between you and your factory partner.

Words from our clients

I’ve been in this industry for a long time and I was surprised that Kanary was able to help find us machines for a 1/3 of the cost compared with US and European manufacturers. What I really enjoy with Kanary is that they constantly keep me in the loop and get back to me almost instantaneously. What’s also great is that they kept me in the loop with the shipping, customs clearance, delivery, and also arrange travels for engineers from the factory to install our equipment.  The quality has been outstanding and I’m in the process of building out a new facility with them.

I’ve been in the construction industry for over 30 years. We’ve always bought from US distributors. I reached out to Kanary out of curiosity to see if we could find similar construction materials of high quality. I did not think they were going to make much progress and so I was shocked when they found the exact manufacturer that my distributors have been buying from within 2 weeks. They were able to make contact and have the factory send me samples within a week.  By connecting directly with the factory, we’re looking at savings of over 30%.

We’ve done quite a few different packaging projects with Kanary in the past (Child-resistant packaging, glass jars, plastic bags, shipper boxes, etc.). We sent AI files to Kanary, who then worked directly with the factory's design team to make prototypes of the packaging. Our in-house designer is very particular about our designs and Kanary was really flexible and worked with us when our designers wanted to make changes in the packaging development process. They were able to manufacture different prototypes at different price points, which gave us options when making our final decision.

Agricultural Machinery FAQs

How do I find a China supplier for tractors?

There's a lot of different avenues to find a China supplier to get tractors. If you're inexperienced with searching for suppliers in China, you may want to enlist the help of a sourcing specialist, like Kanary. If you got it alone, here are a few ways that you can begin your search for tractor suppliers in China:

  • Alibaba: Alibaba is the world's largest B2B platform where businesses and factories can connect. You'll find all kinds of suppliers, including factories that can make tractors. While you'll have many options, you need to take special care when finding suppliers, especially when sourcing agricultural machinery. 
  • Trade shows: It's common for factory representatives to appear at trade shows to advertise their services. 
  • Google search: Many factories have websites where businesses can make direct contact. These websites can be found via simple Google searches, though businesses will still need to take care to properly vet suppliers before making significant business commitments.

My business needs to source agricultural products for retail sale. Can Kanary help?

Yes! We can source agricultural machinery for business use as well as for retail sale. All you need to do is contact us, tell us specifically what you need, and Kanary can make it happen. Depending on the product, we can also help develop branded packaging, graphic design strategies, and more.

How much does it cost to ship excavators from China?

When you ship excavators from China, you can expect to use sea freight shipping. The cost of sea freight shipping is usually based on the size of a container you use (not the weight of your product), so your final price will end up being dependent on your container choice. 

If the weight is excessive, you may end up paying a premium to accommodate the weight, even through sea freight. The best way to determine shipping prices is to know the exact dimensions and weight of your product, and then to contact the shipping business to inquire about current container pricing and any other costs that you may need to consider.

My business is interested in developing a machinery prototype for agricultural use. Can Kanary help?

Yes! While Kanary regularly helps businesses connect with suppliers to source machinery that's already being manufactured, we can also help businesses develop, produce, and ship machinery prototypes for agricultural use. 

Our team has a deep understanding of which suppliers have the engineering capacity to develop novel products, and Kanary knows how to navigate the intricate process of delivering design plans, troubleshooting design problems, and ensuring that your prototype is capable of meeting your needs.

What's the most cost-effective way to ship agricultural machinery from China?

The most-cost effective way to ship agricultural machinery from China is to use sea freight shipping. If you are sourcing multiple machines (for example, several small machines like gas tillers), then you should also consider consolidated shipping. With consolidated shipping, all of your products are put onto the same shipping container, with a goal of making sure you have a full-container load (sometimes called an FCL shipment) when you get to customs.

Not only will this lower shipping costs (since you're only using one container), but it will also make clearing customs easier. At ports, there are drop off sections for less than container (LCL) shipments, and FCL shipments. You'll have an easier time finding space to unload products, and you won't have to worry about customs complications because of an unrelated order in your LCL shipment.

I need greenhouses and greenhouse plastics for commercial use and retail sale. Can Kanary help?

Yes! Kanary has sourced greenhouses and greenhouse plastics in the past, so we already have great relationships with suppliers that have proven they can create high-quality, affordable greenhouses. If our suppliers can match a niche need you may have, Kanary has the expertise to find and vet suppliers that can help create the greenhouse product you need.

What different materials are available when I source greenhouses with Kanary?

Kanary can source a greenhouse made of any material you need, including:

  • Glass
  • Plastic
  • Steel

We can also source container greenhouses, industrial greenhouses, or greenhouses for personal use for retail sale. If you need it, Kanary can find a China factory to make it!
