There has been a lot of recent buzz about companies relocating sourcing or manufacturing out of China. It’s easy to understand why. Supply chains are running at full steam as the economy is booming in many parts of the world, while in other parts economies are taking a hit from obstacles to open commerce and trade. Protectionist trade policies have led to new tariffs – actual and potential – and the accompanying cost increases have led to a general attitude of trade uncertainty, specifically between the US and China. According to an Amber Road and AAEI 2018 report on Trade Trends, 77% of US importers surveyed consider shifting trade policies as their top challenge in the road ahead. More than half of these companies also rank the cost of goods sold as their top concern. These higher tariffs add to the total landed cost, eventually affecting the price on the shelf.

2018 is fading fast. Even though global trade and commerce has been lively all year, not all regions and industries are seeing a comparable benefit. US consumer spending continued to rise which inspired hope for companies in some industries, while the on-going tariff battles are causing other companies to make dramatic shifts in production and sourcing. As we look ahead to 2019, companies with global supply chains must remain vigilant with this unexpected mix of improvement and disruption.
