Consider the changing landscape of China, for example, and take a moment to think about it. In the past, China was seen as an attractive labor market capable of performing manual assembly of all parts sourced from around the world at a reasonable cost. Due to the fact that more and more of what China requires is being created in their own country, the country is no longer reliant on foreign markets.

As a result of the growing obstacles posed by the United States-China trade war, several countries have been forced to source from within their own borders or from their neighbors in order to ensure sufficient supply for local demand.

Several leading market research firms, including International Data Corporation (IDC), have predicted that logistics companies will devote 35 percent or more of their business processing outsourcing services budget to process automation, in inventory, order and shipment tracking by 2022, which is only a few short weeks away.
