Nearshoring is a complex problem that requires an understanding of changing policies and regulations, cost drivers, supply chain, product design, supply market, as well as competition, and pricing. The U.S. may be at the beginning of a nearshoring revolution as the total-cost-and-risks-of-ownership (TCRO) equation in a disaggregated supply chain is being re-written by technological advancements such as AI and automation along with policies and regulations.
