One of the strategies born out of these efforts was nearshoring, which is based on moving part of a company’s production to be closer to its final destination.

Mexico and the United States, besides being neighbors, are part of the Mexico-United States-Canada Agreement (USMCA), making Mexico one of the most attractive destinations for international companies to set up in the country, in order to be closer to the U.S. market. Implementing the nearshoring strategy.

In addition, Mexico has generated solid production and logistics chains together with the United States. The time zones between the two countries are similar, adding attractiveness for companies and investors seeking new locations for their production centers.
