The Need of Sourcing Agent Services
Sourcing Capability In most cases in today's global market, sourcing agents are located in low cost countries. High cost country companies, who want to gain competitive advantages by purchasing components, products or materials from low cost country such as Indonesia location but who don't want to set up an IPO (international procurement office) abroad, may well employ a representative in the country to search for, select, negotiate with suppliers.
Language and Culture
High cost country companies often don't have in house language capability or cultural knowledge to do the sourcing work on their own. Dealing with suppliers who speak Indonesian language and in foreign cultures is totally different from dealing with domestic Indonesian suppliers.
Oftentimes, services provided by sourcing agents include market research, supplier selection, negotiation, quality assurance, pre-shipment inspection, customers clearance etc.
The structures of fees vary among sourcing agents. The most common one is transaction value commission ie the sourcing agent charge the fee as a negotiated percentage of total transaction value. Other types of fee structure include annual retainer fee with performance bonus or fee based on savings achieved.
