Strategic Sourcing in Latin America (“LATAM”)
The post-COVID19 world for companies sourcing from Asia looks quite differently than it did a year ago. Suppliers across the globe have been directly impacted and many of them may not come back. COVID-19 accentuated the importance of working with a truly diversified supply chain, where having your primary and secondary suppliers in different regions is the best practice.
Industrial suppliers in Latin American countries provide key advantages for businesses seeking new sourcing opportunities; cultural affinity, lower transportation costs, a skilled workforce, competitive labor costs, and fewer disruptions. While Mexico may be the first place to look into, a comprehensive sourcing analysis should include exploring suppliers across LATAM as a region.
