AQF conducts product inspection on behalf of importers manufacturing throughout Asia, including Indonesia. Our QC team in Indonesia is Western-managed and based locally. They’re experts in inspecting a wide range of product types, including textiles, vehicle parts, garments, footwear and more. If you’re currently in the sourcing process, you can also benefit from our factory audit services in Indonesia to help you narrow down your search of potential suppliers.
If you find a high defect rate in an order of goods received from your Indonesian supplier, what should you do? Chances are, you may be have to rework the affected units and possibly push back the delivery date to your customers. By doing so, you may be spending a lot of time and money fixing your goods as well as upsetting your customers with the delay.
But you can greatly limit the number of defective units received and prevent other problems by conducting product inspection in Indonesia before your order leaves the factory. Pre-shipment inspection at the factory allows you to find any defects and other issues and address them with your supplier right away. This typically saves importers from having to rework products after receiving an order, in addition to limiting unnecessary shipping delays.
Some importers choose to rely on their factory’s own QC staff to conduct product inspection in Indonesia. But most experienced importers insist on hiring a professional third-party inspector to visit their supplier’s factory and inspect on their behalf. Third-party inspectors typically provide more thorough and impartial reporting. But finding the right independent QC team with experience in your product type can be difficult.
When you choose AQF to handle your product inspection in Indonesia, you no longer need to travel abroad to the factory to ensure you’re getting a reliable look at an order before shipping. Instead, by hiring us on an as-needed basis, you’ll have an inspection scheduled within just a few working days. You’ll benefit from our services in a number of ways, including:
You’ll receive clear and accurate reporting to give you the transparency you need to make an informed shipping decision. You have a choice in where you want to manufacture your product. You also have a choice in how much risk you want to accept. Why not mitigate that risk by conducting product inspection in Indonesia?
You guys are quite efficient in making sure that you are in constant communication with our vendors to set up a time and day to have inspections handled... InTouch definitely pushed to make sure that inspections would be done in a timely manner. Any corrective actions that had to take place were executed well before the exit factory date.
Director of Production, Betabrand
Since InTouch does a more detailed inspection than what we had depended on with the factories, the quality of the products has improved. Where before when we might find 25 AQL defects, now it's down to three or four,because the factory knows that we want that cut back and InTouch is going to find it.
Administrative Assistant, Linstol
InTouch’s auditing reduced the level of risk, whether known or unknown, to our company. From the audit findings provided by InTouch, we were much more equipped to make the correct business decision with regard to an acceptable level of risk. The InTouch audit secured our decision making process.
Vice President of Purchasing, MJS Packaging
One of our customers had been through multiple suppliers year after year and had been let down with returns and rejections. With InTouch as our eyes and ears on the ground, we retained that business for 5 years without one single rejection or complaint.
Director of Operations, MMI Textiles
The speed that we get the reports is always good. We had an experience with some other inspectors where we had to wait an extra day to get the reports. Getting the report as soon as we can is very important, so we can make a decision and give feedback back to the factory.
Operations and Engineering Manager, Juku Gear
From beginning to end, InTouch is so easy to work with. The inspection report is literally there the next morning when I come into work. It really makes my job easier.
