The Benefits of Onshoring and Friend-Shoring

Onshoring can be a sustainable step in times of much-needed supply chain decarbonization, frequent disruptions and increasing social pushback from offshored employees. However, some companies are also considering friend-shoring so they are not limited to only domestic production. Whichever relocalization route they choose, one thing is clear: All roads to more sustainable supply chains start with smarter planning.

Delivering the right relocalization strategy requires preparation, yet not all companies are equipped to do so. More than 60% of them do not have the right tools1 to optimize their workflow assignment and supplier relationship management (SRM). 

To address this gap and begin their onshoring journey, companies can turn to smart supply chain solutions on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform.
