TUCSON, AZ, December 28, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The Offshore Group has made the latest installation in its ongoing series of podcasts on Mexico business topics available on its website.
The session is entitled "Logistics Costs: Mexico versus China
," and focuses on the comparative costs of shipping to and from Mexico from the United States, as well as doing the same with respect to China. Bill Golden, president of The Offshore Group's International Logistic Solutions Company
(ILS), lends some perspective on the subject matter prior to his retirement from a career spanning a 46 year period in manufacturing and logistics.
During the approximately 30 minute discussion, Golden points out the many complexities related to a supply chain that extends thousands of miles, while pointing out the cost and risk benefits of "shortening the pipeline." According to Golden, "Manufacturing is trending towards regionalization. Instead of continuing their production in the Far East to serve the U.S., and the entire North American, market, companies are increasingly moving their production back closer to the point of consumption."
