Sourcing company B2X Corporation announced a new service that removes key concerns preventing small-to-midsized toy retailers from sourcing products directly from Chinese manufacturers.
"Sourcing from China has become a necessity — but it also involves a substantial amount of risk," said David Stephen, vice president Toy Division for B2X Corporation. "B2X is focused on the SME market and has the platform, the process, and the people to meet their sourcing needs. We're structured to remove risk—the reason more toy retailers don't currently buy directly from Chinese manufacturers."
B2X's service, unveiled at the 2008 Toy Fair in New York, represents a powerful new option for toy retailers and others who purchase consumer toys in bulk container quantities. B2X says it works directly with its retail clientele throughout every step of the trading process, from helping source trend-setting toys and differentiating products to paying licensing and customs fees.
