Tradegood, a business-to-business (B2B) sourcing community that connects responsible buyers with trusted suppliers across more than 100 countries, was launched at a US sourcing event this week.
Tradegood gives apparel and footwear buyers the confidence of knowing who their supply chain really is, through the “Business done right” verification process that is underpinned by more than 127 years’ experience across the supply chain.
For fashion retailers in today’s hyper-competitive global apparel market, finding the right supplier can mean the difference between turning a profit and reporting a loss. Tradegood evaluates suppliers on more than 50 separate criteria, including operational history, employee numbers, regulatory compliance and environmental sustainability. With Tradegood, buyers are able to make good partnership decisions with unprecedented efficiency.
“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. Your corporate reputation and bottom line depend on knowing who you are doing business with. Tradegood connects you with the right suppliers that are authenticated, providing the compatibility and transparency that are often lacking in the global supply chain.”
