Manufacturing Logisitics

Rad Sourcing provides a range of freight solutions tailored to meet your budget and specifications.

We partner with leading shipping providers such as DHL, FedEx, and UPS for efficient air freight services. Samples are expedited through express shipping with one of these carriers, unless alternative arrangements are preferred by our clients.

For production needs in Asia, we also offer expedited sea freight options. Please note that delivery times vary depending on the destination, with ocean freight naturally requiring more time compared to air freight. To optimize both time and costs, we advise incorporating lead time into your production schedule.

Delivery Duty Paid (DDP)

Our standard practice for production orders is Delivery Duty Paid (DDP), unless alternative arrangements are specifically requested by the client. 

What is Delivery Duty Paid?

DDP shipping shifts transportation risks and costs from buyers to sellers until buyers receive their goods, ensuring buyer protection and accountability on the part of the seller.

Benefits of Delivery Duty Paid:

  • Buyer Protection: DDP shifts shipping risks and costs to sellers, ensuring customers receive their orders and deterring potential scammers from exploiting the system.
  • Safe International Delivery: DDP prompts sellers to meticulously choose secure shipping routes and comply with diverse international laws, safeguarding packages during global transit.
  • Secure Sea or Air Freight: DDP agreements hold sellers accountable for safe delivery via air or sea, mitigating risks associated with transporting goods over long distances.
  • Seller Responsibility for Fees: DDP alleviates buyers’ concerns about unknown customs fees by requiring sellers to cover international charges, resulting in a smoother purchasing process.”
