Companies that compete in the global marketplace are asking themselves,
“What is our offshore sourcing strategy”?
Connell Brothers Company can help you answer that question.
Connell Brothers Company, Ltd. (CBC) Import Department provides offshore
sourcing strategies and solutions to North American manufacturers and distributors.
We import and supply chemicals, plastics and packaging products; primarily
from Asian countries, Our commitment to our customers is to provide high
quality, competitively priced products from the most reliable manufacturers
in the world.
Our value proposition to our customers focuses on the following three areas:
The U.S. trade deficit with China and other Asian countries results
in many vessels coming to U.S. ports full, but returning with empty
containers. In fact, the cost of importing a container into the U.S.
includes the cost of returning the container back to its point of
origin. Because we export over 14,000 (TEU) containers each year,
we can leverage this volume to obtain an advantage on our inbound
While our competitors may have one or two offices in China, CBC has
32 offices in 16 countries with over 600 employees, many of which work
on behalf of the CBC Import Department in sourcing and negotiating with
suppliers. With such a large network of employees, suppliers and of course
our knowledge of countries in the region, we are geared to meet your commodity
and specialty import requirements. For sourcing citric acid from China,
packaging from Thailand, resin from Indonesia or pharmaceutical intermediaries
from India, CBC has the resources to make it happen.
There are many pitfalls in the import business. Poor quality,
container demurrage, truck detention, security inspections and customs
exams are just a few of the challenges that add to the cost of importing
product. CBC navigates this maze of problems by delivering quality
product without any hidden fees or additional costs. Our customers
receive what they want, when they want it at the price agreed upon
when the order is placed. We honor every agreement and stand behind
every container of product we sell. With over 110 years of company
history and the backing of our parent, Wilbur- Ellis Company, CBC stands
apart as the offshore sourcing partner of choice to our customers.
