Mexico Manufacturing
Mexico’s Strategic Advantages

Outlook: China and Mexico

Over the past decade many U.S. based electronics manufacturers shifted production to Asia to benefit from low cost labor. As wages and air freight costs from China continue to rise, companies are taking a closer look at how to improve their bottom line, therefore supply chain strategies are playing a bigger role in ensuring a company’s profitability.

Understanding key advantages that China, Mexico and the U.S. offers can uncover significant savings opportunities. Direct labor costs are just one of the issues considered and the cost improvement they offer can be quickly eliminated when transportation and inventory costs are taken into account. Although wages in China are still lower than in Mexico, saving on China air freight costs by shipping in bulk to Mexico makes the difference in labor cost insignificant.

For companies whose end market is the Americas, Mexico offers an excellent choice for outsourcing when considering increased competition for air freight space and shipping costs from China, insurance, product delivery and time to market.
