The Need
A sporting goods company in New England needs to add Putang Balls to its existing product lines in order to compete in the marketplace.
Lee World uses its own Joint Venture factories in Baodin, China to develop and customize the product to fit the requirements. In less than 60 days, samples are shipped for approval. 15 days after the Purchase Order is received and confirmed, goods are made and loaded into one of Lee World’s containers for the US. Such a consolidation reduces our customer’s freight costs and saves time. Our professional operations team handles the shipment in the most efficient manner to ensure timely delivery at the lowest costs.

Our customer is satisfied with the product quality, pricing, and the timely delivery


The Need
A national retail giant needs 6 containers of leather apparel for the season’s sales. Only 60 days are given to fulfill the order. Typically, up to 180 days are needed to complete an order of this nature.

In less than 6 days, all hides and accessories are secured via our sourcing channels. Three leather factories having long business relationships with Lee World go into full production immediately. Our account manager is at the factories for quality control and problem solving. Our experience in working with the right factories from the get-go, our procedures in quality control, our industry knowledge and experience in operations enable us to pull off this project expediently.

Just-in-time delivery of these leather apparels enables our customer to execute their sales program. The sales for the season are a tremendous success, and the chain store is repeating the program this year.
