Between increasing tariffs and a global pandemic, the supply chain has been significantly disrupted this year. If you are one of many American manufacturers that rely on international suppliers for materials, parts, or other commodities, you’ve likely experienced shortages or delays.
Even as the coronavirus pandemic seems to be easing somewhat here in the United States, supply chain disruptions are not likely to go away any time soon. The full impact of the pandemic around the world will likely be unknown for quite some time. On top of that, it’s a presidential election year in the U.S., political and social tensions are high, and the future of major trade relations are undetermined. Many manufacturers are finding it hard to plan for the future with so many unknown variables.
There’s never been a better time to consider reshoring, or bringing manufacturing production and sourcing back to the United States. By choosing manufacturers and suppliers in closer geographic proximity to your own operations, you can keep supplies more accessible and greatly reduce your risk for disruptions in the future, particularly in the event of another global crisis. Other benefits of moving suppliers closer to home may include better quality control, more personal service and stronger relationships, reduced transportation costs, and overall quicker turnaround time.
