Supplier Audits in Vietnam
In recent years, many companies have moved a portion of their manufacturing to Vietnam. With higher labor costs in China, tariffs, and supply chain diversification initiatives being put into place, these companies have sought new suppliers.
When considering new suppliers, it is vital to vet them thoroughly and ensure they are the right fit for you as a buyer. A supplier audit allows you to assess a manufacturer and ensure that they are able to meet your needs.
Audits can also be used to ensure ongoing adherence to your requirements and assist you in supplier development.
