Nuts & Bolts

Depending on our customers needs we offer a flexible range of commercial terms and also try our best to speed up our response to their requirements. For a general indication of the various terms, please see below. These are only for indicative purposes. We request you to please check with us for your specific requirement so we can give you a more accurate assessment and offer.

Lead Times

For sample development and regular production, we try to respond as fast as possible to the customers needs and urgency. Often, we develop, make and ship out samples within 48 hours. Sometimes, when the leather or other inputs have also to be newly developed, sample making takes additional time, some times weeks. In all cases, we keep the customers  fully informed of the sample development status.

In the case of new orders for bulk production, from the date of specification and design freeze we normally need a lead-time of 8-9 weeks to make the first shipment. Thereafter, we can maintain a regular shipment schedule as required by the customer. Once a customers designs, leather, fittings, etc. are standardised and inventoried, then subsequent lead times are much less and can come down to as low as 3-4 weeks.

Payment Terms

To begin with, all our international shipments are against advance payment / irrevocable letters of credit payable at sight, or CAD terms for very reputable organisations with a high credit rating.

As the rapport and business relationship grows, we subsequently offer our regular customers mutually agreed  credit terms against usance LCs of reputable banks.

Packaging

Our product packaging for wholesale customers is tailor made to their specific requirements. For bulk shipments of the bags, most customers ask us only for individual polythene, polypropylene or paper bag and master carton packing. On request we can provide D2 packing etc. We do not use DMF based anti-fungal agents in our packing.

In the past, we have developed various kinds of special  packing for small and large leather goods, according to customers’ requirements. These have included individual retail consumer packing with full colour offset printing, screen printing and gold foiling.

Logistics

Depending on the customers choice and the shipment volumes, we use both international air-freight and ocean freight modes.

Whatever be the mode of transport, we ensure that all shipments are securely packed in export-worthy condition to reach their destinations safely.
