Supply Chain Projects

Second-sourcing and Nearshoring supply chain projects are on the rise.

As heard on WSJ What’s News today - businesses across North America are expanding their supply chain footprint in Mexico. I’ve witnessed this across my clients of all sizes, from Fortune 100 to privately owned companies. This makes sense: the COVID shut down and resulting scramble for components (the supply tidal wave) left most manufacturers without their only source for components. Supply Chain leaders finally have the support (funds) of business leaders to duplicate their supply chain. Also, moving it closer to the plant reduces logistics disasters and congestion at ports.

Another struggle is that there aren’t enough supply chain project management experts to hire full-time to get these projects done.

Supply Chain design/redesign projects are my specialty. I’m finding all CPO’s and business leaders have projects based in 3 main types of projects (some have all 3 as a target):

  1. Second Source for critical components
  2. Nearshore (Localizing) supply chain
  3. Cost-Savings

I’ve had success with projects that have attained all 3 at the same time by utilizing my expansive network of supplier partners in Mexico, USA and globally. I have a dedicated team ready to get these critical supply chain projects across the finish line.

If you need to get these supply chain projects done NOW and correctly, let’s have a conversation. I will make you the hero in your business.
