5 Great Benefits of Nearshoring to Mexico
This Article is Brought to You By Rapido Solutions Group
Current supply chain disruptions have made doing business closer to home an even more desirable option. Mexico is rapidly becoming a solution for US-based logistics companies struggling to find quality and affordable talent. Here are five reasons why nearshoring to Mexico is a smarter and more cost-effective choice for your company’s needs.
- It’s Right on Time & Close By
We all know that time is money, and one of the benefits of moving business to Mexico is that they’ll operate in the same time zone as the US. Say you’re outsourcing to India, then you’ll have to deal with the fact that their schedule is completely flipped. Even with a team working out of Europe, their time zone is 6 to 9 hours ahead of the US. So it’s a massive bonus that the US and Mexico won’t have any significant clashes regarding the time zone.
On top of that, it’s incredibly accessible. The ease of hopping on a flight to Mexico is much faster and cheaper than heading to other offshore locations. If you want more oversight or opportunities for team-building, then nearshoring is the way to go.
- We’re Bosom Buddies
Mexico and the US share more than just a border. The histories, peoples, and values are connected. I mean, they’ve got Walmarts, too! But seriously, the commonalities make doing business in Mexico much easier to adjust to compared to countries on other continents. This lowers the chances of making some major cultural blunder that can put an arrangement at risk.
- We Work the Same
The corporate culture between the two countries aligns closely. Adapting to the company culture won’t be hard for a nearshore office. They share values around relationship building, client satisfaction, and productivity. Admittedly, Mexico prefers to strike business deals over a relaxing and lengthy lunch meeting or in the evening with drinks. Whatever and whenever the deal is happening, both can agree it is better served alongside some delicious tacos.
- Dip Into a Talented Pool
Mexico offers an educated and talented workforce at better rates than found in the US, especially in today’s highly competitive market. Nearly 24 million Mexicans are learning English and the US has the second-largest number of Spanish speakers. So there’s a good chance that hopping over language barriers will be a breeze.

- It’s a Beautiful Place to Be
The country has a diverse population and rich cultures to explore through food, architecture, music, and history. There are vast and varied landscapes to take in. Beaches, forests, and ruins are all there. Infrastructure projects, including a new airport and Maya train, are on the horizon to better connect the country and advance economic growth.
While every company has a different set of measurements on what makes the most sense for them, it’s clear that Mexico is very attractive because of its closeness, cost-effective labor, similarities in culture, and easier communication. Additionally, in partnership with Rapido Solutions Group, nearshoring presents the opportunity to enhance efficiency and ease scalability.
