Independent Trading Company has manufactured apparel in Asia for 30 years. In that time we have cultivated and maintained long-term partnerships with hand-selected factories in each of our product categories. The factory that built the first IND4000 in 1987 still makes them today, 30 years later. These long term factory partnerships have streamlined and perfected our production process giving us an edge in quality, consistency, and price. The difference from Independent Trading Company and other factories in China is we have our Stock Blank Apparel Collection where we make Millions of garments each year. The sheer volume of our Stock Production requires a huge infrastructure of Knitting Machines, Dye Houses, and Cut & Sew facilities. Keeping our factories busy all year round ensures us the best prices on our Custom Apparel which we pass along to you.


Independent Trading Company Custom Import and Shipping

Import & Shipping

Shipping is often overlooked when quoting a custom garment overseas.  With independent no matter how large or small your order, it can be put in a container with our stock garments that ship weekly from China to our warehouses.  Even a 600pcs order gets full container shipping rates, and we get great prices.  If you were shipping loose cargo it would cost quite a bit more.

The large volume of apparel that Independent Trading imports each year, assures our customers efficient customs clearance and the most reliable, economical international and domestic freight pricing. Our team handles all documentation for quick customs clearance and arranges ocean and air freight from Asia to the U.S. and other worldwide destinations.
