Readers may share their opinions on off-shoring
September 02, 2011 - LM Editorial
As more attention is being paid to the “volatility” in the supply chain, many shippers are reassessing their global sourcing and distribution strategies. Will multinationals retreat to a hemispheric near-shoring model, or opt for a hybrid that still has an international component?
These and other vexing questions are poised by a new Hackett Group study assessing whether Inflation is driving manufacturing out of China, India, and other low-cost countries
Hackett’s 2011 Supply Chain Optimization Performance is designed to get answers to questions such as:
*What impact are rapidly changing cost drivers having on manufacturers?
*What strategies are manufacturers using to offset these costs?
Are manufacturers bringing production closer to customer markets?
*What are the critical success factors for optimizing the supply chain footprint?
The study is open until September 16, at no cost to participants. Study participants will receive a research report and an exclusive invitation to a presentation of key research findings. Responses from individual participants will remain completely confidential and will be used only in combination with those of other study respondents to develop a composite picture.
The study is available online at:
