The ever-growing customer demands on product and service in today's globalized society are the reason for a new trend: nearshoring. The local production within the framework of nearshoring enables companies to respond to customer needs with shorter delivery times and higher flexibility.

By conducting this survey, Miebach Consulting will investigate how the supply chain can be aligned to implement nearshoring efficiently. The study assesses the relevant factors for supporting the decision and give an outlook on future tendencies.

Market participants in the logistics and manufacturing industries are encouraged to take part in this survey. The online questionnaire will take about 15 minutes to complete. All submitted information is strictly confidential and will serve exclusively as base of data for the empirical part of our anonymized study. The survey will be available until end of November 2016.
