FRESNO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 25, 2012) - In a recent interview on the topic of warehousing and logistics trends in the Americas, International Warehouse & Logistics Association (IWLA) Chairman & CEO, Joel Anderson, said that "The fuel price spike has increased the cost of transport, particularly by truck, and as a result, shippers seek to shorten the distances of the supply chain by finding means to re-locate sourcing closer to the consumer. We are seeing a significant increase in trade with Mexico and the Caribbean as near-shoring of manufacturing moves closer to the consumer and the supply chain is shortened. In addition, we are seeing shippers move to multiple distribution points (California, Midwest, Southeast, and Northeast)… to conserve transport costs."
