CLAREMONT, CALIFORNIA – June 3, 2024 –  As Mexico ushers in its first female president, Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, and reaffirms its commitment to the “fourth transformation,” Lisa Anderson, MBA, CSCP, CLTD, President of LMA Consulting Group Inc., shares her insights on how this political shift is expected to enhance nearshoring opportunities for U.S. manufacturers.

During the presidential debates, candidates highlighted several key initiatives that aim to streamline the movement of goods across borders. Proposed improvements include modernizing border crossings, enhancing legal certainty, and upgrading roads and rail networks. Such advancements are crucial for U.S. businesses looking to nearshore production and reduce dependency on distant suppliers.

“With these proposed improvements in infrastructure and legal frameworks, U.S. manufacturers can anticipate more efficient and reliable supply chains,” states Ms. Anderson. “The commitment to modernizing cross-border interactions directly supports the nearshoring trend, which has been years in the making. This not only helps mitigate supply chain risks but also enhances the overall competitiveness of American manufacturing sectors.”

The nearshoring wave is not just about geographical proximity; it’s about creating a more responsive and adaptable supply chain framework. “As Mexico invests in its logistics and infrastructure, U.S. businesses stand to gain significantly. These enhancements will allow for quicker turnaround times, lower transport costs, and ultimately, boost market responsiveness.”

LMA Consulting continues to guide U.S. manufacturers in leveraging these new opportunities through strategic supply chain planning such as SIOP (Sales Inventory Operations Planning) and supply chain optimization. “Our expertise helps businesses capitalize on regional sourcing and nearshoring benefits, ensuring that they not only survive but thrive in this evolving landscape,” adds Anderson.
