There are many advantages when it comes to sourcing from China. However, all those advantages are determined by the sourcing company one is associated with.

At the same time, China is able to create products for a cheaper price and better quality compared to it’s other cheap Asian counterparts. Even though other Asian countries might offer prices lower than Chinese prices, the quality you are able to get from China tends to be higher.
2, Another benefit is that it is relatively faster to make goods in China due to larger factory sizes and the industrial market demand. For the same price and quality, China can make a good faster than anywhere is Asia just because there are so many factories looking for business and prepared for a challenge.
3, Chinese suppliers are also relatively pliable in terms of adjusting with demands. There is a lot of flexibility and creativity when it comes to factories here and order can easily be pushed up on late notice. Furthermore, shipping from China is relatively cheap due to the heavy loads that are constantly shipped worldwide.
