Nearshoring / Mexico logistic

Nearshoring, de “moda” entre las manufactureras | T21

Not so long ago the manufacturing companies decided to migrate their production centers away from their main markets of sale, looking for improvements in its costs.
In industrial jargon, this migration was known as offshoring. Today the trend is the opposite, according to a recently published study. More and more companies place their factories as close as possible to their target markets, giving way to the so-called nearshoring.
This change is due to the “constant increase in customer demand for unique and short-term products,” revealed Miebach Consulting in his study “Increasing Supply Chain Complexity.”
At the same time, it was pointed out that 51% of these companies worldwide carry out their activities based on nearshoring, while in Mexico 40% of them do so.
The study was carried out worldwide, where two thirds of the companies are located in Europe and the rest are from America and 1% from Africa.
The sectors that participated were consumer goods and electronics, fashion and lifestyle, capital goods, automotive supplier, electronics and high tech, metal and processing industry, automotive manufacturer, building materials, service provider and pharmacist.
Within the strategies of companies in terms of their production / assembly activities, their main characteristics were revealed. That is, in the world 41% of companies produce for inventory (Built to stock), while in Mexico this same practice is performed by 50% of companies.
In turn, 37% worldwide produces entirely by order (Built to order); In Mexico it does 23 percent.
In the study, the consultant Miebach shows that either one or another trend (nearshoring or offshoring) are not opposed, but their “use” is the result of internal analysis in companies.
Today’s competition is not between companies but between their supply chains, “he said.
This is related to a number of factors, including the quality standards offered by a country or region for production, the availability of technical systems, the low cost per unit, the speed of production, the costs of Labor, among others.
Long-term success will be achieved by companies that are able to identify the future needs of different markets on time and adjust their supply chain to adapt to these changes, “Miebach concludes in his study.
