Manufacturing Management: Reshoring revival strengthens supply chains

Forterro in the news


In Manufacturing Management magazine, Forterro discusses how reshoring (the practice of moving manufacturing operations closer to home) can strengthen supply chains and boost local economies. 

Here's an excerpt from the article: 

“Reshoring isn't just about geography, it's about reducing the expansive lead times and high transportation costs associated with global shipping. This not only enhances the efficiency of supply chains but also minimises the environmental impact associated with long-distance shipping. The ability to quickly respond to market changes and consumer demands becomes a critical competitive advantage.

Economic impacts are substantial, with reshoring supporting millions of jobs across manufacturing, logistics, and retail sectors. By channelling investments into local production, businesses are integrating themselves into their communities' economic landscapes, promoting regional development and strengthening economic stability.”
