In Logistics

There’s no doubt that the China+1 business strategy is here to stay—and even Chinese companies are looking to set up shop in Mexico to circumvent import tariffs.

But the headlines on nearshoring usually don’t cover the granular challenge— including politic risks, facing companies that seek to maximize the opportunities from this trend, especially logistics companies.

In AMI’s recent webinar, we help you understand the drivers of nearshoring, real-world success cases, and what to expect in the near future as 2024 elections loom in the US, and the Mexico’s Sheinbaum administration starts.

  • How costs for building a product in Mexico are 23% cheaper than in other parts of the world
  • The three big impacts on nearshoring due to the US-Mexico relationship
