Moving Out Of China Isn't So Easy

Posted by Daniel Smith on Tue, Jan, 22 2019 @ 10:08 AM

There has been a lot of recent buzz about companies relocating sourcing or manufacturing out of China. It’s easy to understand why. Supply chains are running at full steam as the economy is booming in many parts of the world, while in other parts economies are taking a hit from obstacles to open commerce and trade. Protectionist trade policies have led to new tariffs – actual and potential – and the accompanying cost increases have led to a general attitude of trade uncertainty, specifically between the US and China.  According to an Amber Road and AAEI 2018 report on Trade Trends, 77% of US importers surveyed consider shifting trade policies as their top challenge in the road ahead.  More than half of these companies also rank the cost of goods sold as their top concern.
