AREAS

We take the headaches out of procurement by providing end-to-end sourcing solutions to save our clients’ time, to deliver best value and to de-risk the process with quality assurance from manufacture through to fulfilment. With over 20 years of procurement experience we have built up specialist knowledge and an extensive network across the entire supply chain to deliver our services within a structured process:

PRODUCT SOURCING

We review our clients’ product specifications in detail, to identify potential sources across key criteria including capability, reliability, best value, quality and ethics.

SUPPLIER SCREENING

 

We carry out an in-depth screening process to filter all these sources to recommend the best match based on the client’s identified criteria.

COST ENGINEERING

 

We identify the most cost effective method to source quality products through detailed analysis, forecasting and by reverse engineering the manufacturing process.

AUDIT & INSPECTION

We work with the world’s leading companies to conduct audits, undertake tests as applicable, and verify their accreditations to ensure product quality, service levels and ethical standards.

LOGISTIC

 

We work very closely with leading freight forwarders to monitor the complete supply chain, communicating with them and our clients throughout each stage of the critical path to ensure on-time delivery.

FULFILMENT

 

We facilitate the entire fulfilment process by forecasting the intake and sell-through, recommending optimum supply levels, managing warehousing and stock control.

OUR VISION

We understand the challenges of sourcing the right product and the complexities of managing the entire supply chain process. It can be very time-consuming and fraught with risk, especially where a supplier is based overseas which often makes it difficult to verify them in terms of capability, quality, reliability and ethics. Production is only one part of the supply chain of course, logistics and shipping need to be managed as well, along with the associated requirements and documentation for customs and any related legislation.

At Far Link we have over 20 years of experience in sourcing and procurement. During this time we’ve accumulated a wealth of specialist knowledge and built an extensive network across the entire supply chain.

We tailor our services according to each individual client’s needs. This commences with a review of their specifications and a thorough market analysis followed by full product cost engineering to identify potential sources across key criteria from capability and reliability, to best value, quality and ethical standards.

We then screen all the potential suppliers that meet the criteria only recommending the most reliable to manufacture our clients’ products. Whilst finding the most cost effective ways to manufacture and deliver the products is our main objective, we never compromise on product quality. We work with world’s leading companies to conduct factory audits, inspections, testing and certifications to ensure quality standards and ethical compliance.

We coordinate the contracts process with binding agreements that meet the relevant regulations acting as the point of contact between our clients and the suppliers with communications at each stage.

Punctuality goes hand in hand with quality. It’s our biggest commitment. We work very closely with our freight forwarders to monitor and manage the critical path, staying closely involved at every stage and communicating progress with our clients throughout. We also help our clients with forecasting by providing advice on optimum stock in-take, stock control, warehousing and fulfilment.

Our portfolio is very broad both in scale and diversity. It ranges from individual component parts to complete and fully certified products and machines. We have sourced items and completed projects for clients across most sectors including cosmetics, packaging, healthcare, fast fashion, pet supplies, stationery, digital products, furniture and more.

We positively relish challenges and welcome all opportunities to discuss any potential requirement. We strive to deliver the best service levels we can and delight in helping our clients expand their businesses by providing a complete procurement solution.
