Video explaining Nearshoring for USA and Mexico

A nice video about Nearshore-Outsourcing from the perspective of a buyer based in the US and the provider based in Mexico. While the whole video is (ofcourse) an advertisement of a mexican provider the basic ideas of Nearshoring is explained in an enjoyable way. Worth watching.

Nice explanation:

Shore 1.0:  onshore -> USA, offshore –> India, nearshore -> Canada

Got it, right?

Then "Nearshore 2.0" is explained and why Mexico is the far better choice when compared with India. You might decide for yourself 😉
