Tradegood Sourcing Tool Unveiled
Tradegood, a business-to-business sourcing community created to connect apparel and footwear buyers
with suppliers across more than 100 countries, debuted recently at Sourcing at MAGIC in Las Vegas.
The tool, which employs the "business done right" verification process, rates suppliers based on more than 50 criteria — including operational history, employee count, regulatory compliance and environmental sustainability — to help buyers make efficient partnership decisions.
"The global supply chain is an area of vulnerability for many businesses," said William Quilindo, president, Tradegood. "The only way to ensure that your suppliers align with your corporate values as well as with social, environmental, security, safety and quality standards is to know that you are dealing with real companies, real people, with real products and services."
Tradegood also introduced Trade Café, a physical area where buyers and suppliers may convene. Other Trade Café locations will open in New York City and various locations in China, and will include video conference facilities.
