Mexico’s location to the United States, being that it is contiguous and shares a border, eliminates any water travel or unnecessary transportation. This allows for a shorter transit time for both inbound and outbound transportation.
Saves money (cuts down fuel costs)
Along with saving time, this also saves money by cutting down on fuel costs. This is becoming more of a concern for global manufacturers because of rising fuel costs, which is now a decision making factor for all manufacturers.
Faster communication (smaller time difference)
Compared to Asia’s time difference with the United States (China is 12 hours ahead of EST), Mexico’s time difference (Mexico is 1 hour behind EST) is incredibly more manageable for communication.
Shorter supply chain + faster communication = Reduced cash-to-cash cycle
With a shorter supply chain combined with faster communication, companies can see a dramatically reduced cash-to-cash cycle.
