AboutWhy Changsha Trading Company?

Most of the world’s people-made products are being manufactured in China. There are few products that aren’t or can’t be manufactured in China and generally at greatly reduced prices.

However, lets face it, sourcing the right product, at the right price, with maximum quality can be challenging even in Australia – Let alone in China!

The internet can provide access to Chinese manufacturers but establishing their validity from Australia is difficult. In the worst case scenario “suitcase” companies (fake businesses) can front as genuine suppliers and manufacturers.

The language barrier and Chinese business customs can also prove challenging for Australian businesses to import their product, due to the limited ability to conduct due diligence and understand contract terms.

This is where Changsha Trading Company excels!

We have local people on the ground in Changsha with decades of experience in trading and sourcing products from this market. All the time looking after your best interests.

Our team’s strong relationships and deep understanding of the Changsha (capital of Hunan), Hunan province and surrounding provinces manufacturing goods market is invaluable

Our LocationWhy China, Changsha and Hunan Province?

“China is a manufacturing superpower and the biggest market for manufacturing products globally. China’s factories now generate more real manufacturing value added than the US, Germany, South Korea, and the UK combined.” (source: BCG) We target Changsha and Hunan province because it is strategically placed within a major manufacturing region – the Chang-Zhu-Tan city cluster and surrounding provinces! Changsha Trading Company provides direct access to 6 of China’s top 10 provinces by GDP (Hunan, Guangdong, Hubei, Sichuan, Fujian and Zhejiang). Accessing these provinces through Changsha removes additional costs and layers of going through China’s major international centres. Growth in Chinese manufacturing is also currently expanding at the greatest rate in its central provinces, which CTC is strategically placed to access.
