Near-reshoring your supplies from China: a good deal for financial motives too

Abstract : Reshoring, whether concerning back-reshoring or near-reshoring, is a quite recent phenomenon. Despite the economic and political interest of this topic, research questioning determinants and results of reshoring remain rare. To better understand reasons for reshoring, we conducted a study among 270 French firms in spring and summer 2016, including 197 of them sourcing manufactured goods from China. As reshoring is not a static decision, but the opposite decision to an initial offshoring choice, occurring after a longer or shorter period, we interviewed our respondents about their historical background with China regarding their supplies and current reshoring strategies, motivations and feed-back after having reshored.
