Webinar | June 29, 2022 – Copy

Find out what companies are doing to leverage Mexican automotive suppliers to reduce dependence on Chinese suppliers.

Currently there is a trend for companies in the U.S./North America to:

Diversify their supply chain from China to Mexico
  • Affected by pricing, logistics, US/China tariffs, overdependence on China, long lead times
Look for real sourcing opportunities for success in Mexico
  • Closer proximity to U.S. and North American customers
  • Avoidance of US/China tariffs
Overcome real challenges in establishing Mexican supply chain network
  • MX vendors overwhelmed – not providing indicative pricing without company verification
  • Need to establish relationship and difficult to do with no pre-existing relationships
  • MX not replacement for China – size/scale of China
