An Online Service Marketplace Could Save Your Business
Inflation of Chinese Supply Shipments: Trouble Ahead?
Recent cost increases of 20-50% on imported goods and supply shipments from China have caused American and Western buyers to frantically seek out alternative suppliers. So far, no real alternative business services or solutions have been found that can keep up with China's mammoth manufacturing and supply rate, nor has any alternative been found to provide cost relief from the inflated prices on exports and shipments.
So what does this mean for business costs and business owners in retail, distribution, manufacturing and more? It could mean anything from inflated re-sale prices to a lack of products, goods and merchandise across thousands of industries, if oversea shipments continue to rise above affordability, in order to keep up the same frequency of new shipments. If consumers accept higher price tags on items like inexpensive clothing, appliances, and other bottom-shelf products you'd typically buy at Walmart or Kmart for bargain prices - it could have temporary or minimal impact. But, if American buyers continue to haggle over shipment, export and supply costs, or people stop buying the same items with marked up prices, the results could have a negative effect on trade between China and the West, as well as American economy and business in general.
