Shippers require new cross-border strategies

Many shippers are looking for opportunities to shorten their supply chain timelines, which is often done through nearshoring.


The challenges with international shipping are pushing manufacturers to develop new strategies

For the past few years, shippers have felt more challenges on their supply chains. It has become increasingly difficult for manufacturers to secure the parts they need for products. Therefore, making it difficult for shippers to get their products to their destination, especially when shipping overseas.

Many shippers are looking for opportunities to shorten their supply chain timelines, which is often done through nearshoring. Schneider recently held an event for shippers in Mexico City where more than 50% of them noted that their North America international shipment volumes increased from Q1-Q2 in 2022. 70% of them said they expect them to continue to do so over the next 18 months. Shippers need to be very intentional with their nearshoring transportation strategy.

Cross-border shippers will need to develop a long-term strategy with experienced carriers to solve their capacity challenges. This is a good time for shippers to look into where it makes sense to have a nearshoring location or warehouse based on network and locations.
