Unauthorized distribution by authorized factories can have a true impact on the value of a brand in the marketplace. Factory overruns and backdoor goods are abundant in the wholesale marketplace, originating from countries like Pakistan, Indonesia, Bangladesh, China and India. Vaudra Ltd.’s investigators are tuned in to these wholesale networks and receive a wide variety of offers on a daily basis. Our investigations into backdoor goods have assisted brand owners in identifying the factories prone to product shortages, and collected the evidence to address the issues, holding the factories, distributors and licensees accountable for their actions in accordance to the company’s governing policies. These factory investigations also have prevented the sale of cancelled orders that would have proven detrimental to the brand and end user had the products made it to market.
Through our informant base, Vaudra Ltd.’s investigators have a pulse on the wholesale market and can act as the brand’s eyes and ears into the world of unauthorized distribution.
