Scandic Sourcing is helping Copenhagen Malmö Port and Malmö City Council work closely in contacts with China. These contacts include Chinese government and associations, Chinese companies in the business segments of vehicles, logistics, processing machines, ‘green’ energy such as wind power and other so-called clean technology. With our assistance, CMP has made numerous visits to cities and regions in China, and Chinese delegations have visited CMP in both Copenhagen and Malmö. Most significantly, the relationship between CMP and Hebei/Shenzhen is continuously developing. Agreements have been signed with the ports in both regions which make CMP a selected partner and pave the way for new business opportunities. Big companies from Hebei and Shenzhen are having conversations with CMP about them expanding to Scandinavia to conduct business. It’s a long process, but CMP is anticipating further collaboration to commence soon.

Due to rapid development and expansion, suppliers in China often lack the systems and procedures we are used to in the west. We have several programs to help you to work with your existing suppliers in China, developed during our many years of sourcing in China.
Code of Conduct in China
With our supplier code of conduct program we audit your suppliers to ensure that you have a clear picture about the supplier's situation. Our audit also covers the key points regarding what is required for third-party supplier auditing under ISO 14000.
Supplier quality system audits
Many companies' quality systems deteriorate after the first approval and might not meet your requirements. We inspect the quality system on key points, measure status, and suggest improvement actions.
With our Supplier Development program we help you work with any suppliers that have weaknesses but the potential and willingness to reach the required standard levels. We actively coach them to meet your international standards and help them to consistently improve quality, service, and lead time as well as decrease costs. Our Chinese-Western cross-cultural team serves as a bridge that builds an understanding between you and the factories.
