Temu, a US-based e-commerce platform, has come up with some stringent plans to utilize PDD’s pre-existing supply chain network to take its expansion to a whole different level.
Temu, which paved its ways in the US in September 2022, will use the network of more than 11 million global suppliers maintained by Nasdaq-listed PDD to find one-of-a-kind products for its customers. Moreover, Temu’s portfolio of affordable, high-quality products will secure some good growth thanks to PDD’s recently unveiled plan to establish 100 global brands and link 10,000 manufacturers to international markets.

With PDD’s international supplier plan, Temu’s customers will have even more options for high-quality products from some of the best manufacturers in the world” the firm stated in a press release.
How Temu secured some unprecedented growth within a short period?
As per the recent reports, that also mentioned that the company had a “headstart in sourcing products” because of PDD’s supply chain resources, Temu’s advantage over its rivals may be its “extensive connections with factories in China.” Moreover, as per a recent survey, Temu briefly held the top spot among Android shopping apps in the US, a feat that no other shopping app has achieved in such a short period of time.
Temu currently sells products in 15 different categories, ranging from apparel to home goods to pet supplies.

Many of the most advanced manufacturers in the world, who have built up valuable intellectual property of their own and years of experience in production know-how while serving major brands, are among PDD’s suppliers.
Temu has become the talk of the town!
