HQTS is partners with various eCommerce platforms in Asia to provide several quality control and assurance services to ensure the safety and quality of products they deliver to online domestic consumers.
This is a growing business for HQTS as Asia consumers increasingly demand the same product quality and safety often associated with the export markets. The growing middle class has more disposable income, and is demanding higher quality and safety in the products they purchase.

Some of these services include quality control inspections, consumer product testing, ISTA packaging testing, factory audits, supplier verification and evaluations, counterfeit investigation and mitigation, and more.
