Foxconn

Foxconn has been building all sorts products for Apple for a number of years. Foxconn is where the iPhone and many iPads and other devices are constructed before being shipped around the world to suppliers. A new rumor has surfaced that suggests Foxconn may be helping Apple ship devices directly to China.

Rumors claim that the Foxconn factory in Zhengzhou, China will serve as primary supplier to the Chinese domestic market allowing for easier transition from production to shipping Apple. Previously products built in China have to be shipped to Hong Kong complete export procedures and then imported back into the country to be sold.

The Chinese factories also expected to perform some logistics and maintenance services for after the sale within China. Foxconn is also reportedly trying to get similar arrangements in place in Indonesia and Brazil where it also has factories.
