About DocShipper Sourcing

DocShipper was founded with one main goal: the digital and operational revolution in the sector of international logistics and strategic sourcing.

The founders, visionaries, quickly understood that traditional offers won't be enough to satisfy our market expectation... We must go beyond!

From then on, DocShipper will structure itself as an integrated company in order to manage the entire product cycle for SME and Key Account customers:

One mission, Your satisfaction!

DocShipper was initially known as an "international freight forwarder". Throughout the activities and experience, the group has distinguished itself from traditional companies with the proposal of a real tailor-made solution including transport, but also ancillary services such as finding a supplier, setting up compliance, customs clearance, packaging, storage, and above all proactive support from our experts throughout the supply chain!

And when you think about it, as a freight forwarder, we also had access during all these years to a massive supplier database! The following question was quickly answered: why not let our customers benefit from this expertise? DocShipper thus integrated the sourcing department into its core business.

DocShipper is providing a turnkey solution delivering an international procurement and logistic process for key accounts and SMEs worldwide that is personalized and trusty for every transactions and in which all parties are beneficiaries.

Que vous dire? Si je pouvais mettre 100 étoiles aux équipes de DocShipper je le ferais. Ils ont littéralement participer au changement de ma vie et ceux en toute sérénité. Pour faire court j’ai monté ma petite maison d’édition, spécialisée dans les livres sonores. Fabrication et expertise qui n’existent plus qu’en Chine. Grâce à Daniel B., mon agent attitré, j’ai pu de A à Z concrétiser ce projet fou!!! De la faisabilité, à la recherche de la meilleure usine, en passant par la production, le contrôle qualité, jusqu’à la livraison chez moi, Daniel a tout supervisé pour moi. M’a expliqué quand je ne comprenais pas, et même conseillé quand j’hésitais! Il a même négocier des choses qui n’entraient pas forcément dans mon budget. Réactif, disponible, efficace , en plus d’être sympathique, patient et volontaire. J’ai eu des moments de stress mais jamais en lien avec DocShipper directement. Bien au contraire les petits pièges de cette aventure m’ont tous été évités!!! Bref je recommande les services de DocShipper et surtout je continuerai de travailler avec eux pour le reste de mon aventure!!! Merci Daniel! Merci DocShipper!!! Fatima AEH

FAQ about our solutions

What is a compliance service?

Compliance is a key service of our sourcing department. Indeed, if your products are not in line with the regulation of the destination market, customs officials will not allow the products to enter the market. It is therefore a step that allows you to certify the conformity of your products via certificate(s) and/or license(s), a highly recommended step, especially if this is your first transaction with a supplier.

What is a quality control service?

The quality control service allows, as its name suggests, to verify that the production is in line with your expectations. It is an inspection that is coordinated on 2 very specific factors: width and depth. The width means, how many units you want to control. For example on a production of 10,000 units, you only want to check 1,000 pieces in order to save money. Finally, the depth will be the precision of the control: is it only a visual control or do we also have to check the functionality of the products?

Is it possible to combine several services?

Yes of course, it is also highly recommended in some cases. The higher the value of your products is, the more we advise you to control your goods, the same goes for compliance. Note that our logistics department will take over the rest of the operations in order to ship the goods to the desired destination, for example our distribution center in Italy so that you can focus only on your core business: the search for customer.

What are the advantages of DocShipper?

DocShipper combines multiple advantages for your business. Besides the communication that we make as easy as possible, we are - the one and only - company able to manage the entire product cycle. From supply to distribution, our teams assist you to optimize your business: lower costs, more responsiveness and therefore more profit.

International freight | Sea - Air - Rail - Road | Customs clearance

Enjoy tailor-made support

You have several options when shipping goods internationally. Your priority is the price? Then you will opt for a sea freight solution. Urgent delivery? Opt for air freight. Are you looking for a happy medium? Rail freight is for you. A small parcel to send? Choose an express solution.

If the logistical process does not seem like a very complex task at first, you will quickly understand (perhaps at your expense) that the slightest mistake can turn your operations into a disaster (and therefore into a financial hole!). Did you forget a document? Are your supplier's certificates not up to date? The customs officials will unfortunately not give a gift.

But all is not lost, go for DocShipper! Unlike traditional freight forwarders, we offer tailor-made support from the start to the end of operations. One of our consultants will follow you through the entire process and will be your representative to the various stakeholders (supplier, shipping line, customs, etc.). One way for us to guarantee the quality of services and the fluidity of operations.

Strategic sourcing in Asia

China has obviously been at the heart of this development and has developed sophisticated supply chains in a wide range of product categories. Yet this supply orientation in China is slowly eroding for a multitude of different reasons. These include inflationary cost pressures, the development of new markets (such as Vietnam), increased protectionism, risk reduction for supplier bases, and sustainability initiatives to name a few. - one of the motors. This marks the start of a new era of "smart manufacturing", with some of the largest Asian markets (such as China and India) investing government-wide in technology to help the efficiency of their respective manufacturing bases in the decades to come. These include increased use of automation, data management and artificial intelligence, which will better align the demands on manufacturers of the future. Therefore, in a global context, Asia will continue to be an important part of any outsourcing strategy. However, it is not always easy to understand the best way to extract value from the Asian manufacturing sector.

The continent presents a unique set of challenges, for example in business ethics, local laws, local regulations, cultures and languages. There are also differences within each country that must be understood and taken into account in any decision made. Ultimately, the way companies strategically choose to engage with Asian manufacturers is a decision about risk versus profitability. Whether it's having an internal Asian sourcing expert as part of a direct sourcing model or partnering with a sourcing company (like us!) Or taking the plunge and d 'establish your own local base (we have alternative solutions for this) or whatever, there are probably a lot of options to consider.
