Proximity to other parts in the supply chain allows companies like 3D Robotics to use Mexico as a fast and cost effective manufacturing base.
Staten Island, New York (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Mexico has been benefiting from international attention as more companies see it as a destination for portions of their business. Latin American Cargo (LAC), a popular freighter and personal moving company, has been paying attention to how many companies have been moving to Mexico. This, in part, has been due to the proximity to the United States as a final destination for goods, and Mexico as a destination for manufacturing.
This article about the American company 3D Robotics discusses how valuable Mexico has been to their company’s business model. While Chinese labor may be cheaper than Mexican, their decision of moving to Mexico lies in the required speed of processing and not just the final costs. Also, rather than requiring the company to make orders in bulk to get a good deal in both manufacturing and shipping, having this step in their supply chain in Mexico gave them more flexibility in their purchasing choices.
Latin American Cargo has been heavily invested in Mexico and many other Latin American countries for over a decade, and understands that these locations have much to offer many different varieties of companies in Canada and the United States. LAC has also been privileged enough to offer services as an international personal moving company to those wishing to relocate to or from Mexico and the rest of Latin America. This, while not as telling as the trends in businesses and their supply chains, does add to the evidence LAC sees of Latin America becoming a destination for a wider variety of peoples.
While manufacturing has indeed seen it’s popularity rising across Latin America it is not the only sector worth mentioning. In countries like Peru and Brazil there are abundant resources which also form a major point along the supply chains of many companies. Many sectors are not just moving to Mexico for the production and sale of their goods, but also to many other countries for the acquisition of the raw resources needed in their production.
Latin American Cargo feels that this is neither a new nor unexpected phenomenon, with their many years of experience having pointed to the value of Latin America for years.
