Reshoring Manufacturing Operations to North America
Moving operations off-shore to reduce cost has been a long standing practice in manufacturing, however the alternative benefits of reshoring operations has become more evident in recent years.
Manufacturers need to weigh the options of labor cost, shipping, taxation, lead time and trade implications.
There are many complex aspects of establishing which practice is right for your business over the long run.
Two major factors driving the reshoring trend can be easily observed:
Reshoring (otherwise known as onshoring, inshoring or backshoring) is widely viewed as the best form of insurance against the cost-instability of offshoring, of course the “elephant in the room” is that offshoring has been leveraged historically to reduce the additional costs of manufacturing onshore, so what can be done about this? Industry 4.0 is the answer.
