Changing consumer behaviors demand rapid and iterative innovation which can be more effectively achieved by shortening supply chains and bringing producers closer to final consumers. This process of reshoring, bringing businesses back to the United States, offers benefits such as shorter delivery times, higher quality, and responsivity to customers. The key to making this transition successful is to find reliable partners state-side. Westset Logistics and Distribution is ideally suited to be your company’s warehousing, distribution and last mile logistics solutions provider throughout the reshoring process and into the future.
What is Reshoring?
Reshoring is the growing trend of bringing manufacturing from overseas back to the United States. Tariffs enacted on Chinese, Canadian and European imports were meant to level the global trade playing field and incentivize U.S. companies to bring manufacturing back to America. The international impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on trade has accelerated this trend.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted complex global supply chains from logistics (closed borders, idling ships, and reduced routes) to operational capacity concerns which impact production schedules and order fulfillment. Manufacturers are looking to secure their supply chains through simplification, diversification and localization. As a result of the disruptions caused by the recent coronavirus outbreak, about 1 in 2 North American manufacturers (47%) are now looking to source domestically.
