SL is a British-Chinese agency specialising in B2B solutions for souring Chinese products and marketing to the Chinese market. We are a combination of a digital marketing agency and a logistics service. The founder of Serbatian Services, a British logistics service, suggests sourcing Chinese products with a better B2B experience. He believes “Simplicity is the vessel for profoundness”; a website to upload the image for expert service will support more businesses to get a lower price, but the better quality product simplifies and enhances the lives of business people. His idea inspired Alice, the founder of a digital marketing agency, who had 13ys international business backgrounds and 6ys of digital marketing experience. She received requests from Leeds businesses to find Chinese suppliers frequently. At the same time, her contacts from China constantly asked for suppliers of equipment information outside China—the data localisation, language and culture barriers caused this market gap. So they decided to collaborate on this project and bring IT backbone, logistics and human resources to create a unique B2B platform.
