You are an economic operator, a project owner living in / or not in Africa. You have decided to import from China to optimize your supply chain. According to your requirements for qualities and prices, it is essential for you to master these two keywords of international trade before starting any import operation from China.
- ODM (Original Design Manufacturer): Means that the supplier manufactures your products according to the design that you have previously created and Shaped. Thus, an order in ODM requires new molds, packaging whose costs are usually supported by the customer. The factory mostly requires larger quantities than normal one, once the sample is produced and Confirmed. This mode of production is more suitable for big companies that have a large budget.
- OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) : Here the supplier offers his standard products to the customer. The supplier has its own brand, which is already distributed. No need to design a new mold. Depending on its characteristics, the customer chooses from the supplier’s products the one that comes closest to what he wants or needs. The customer adds his logo and can also modify the packaging at his convenience. This mode of production is more suited to low-budget companies.
Note: OEM is also used by larger companies as it does not require additional charges for new molds, etc. This allows them to save money.
Domains: Phones, motorcycles, plastic packaging, electronic devices, etc.
NB: Look closely at these areas around you. You will see many products that look alike. There is just the name changing for the most part. Do not be surprised, everyone makes OEM in majority.
