Engström G.; Hilletofth P.; Eriksson D.; Sollander K. (2018) Drivers and barriers of reshoring in the Swedish manufacturing industry World Review of Intermodal Transportation Research Vol. 7, No. 3, pp. 195-220
The paper is based on five cases of Swedish manufacturing companies. It is aimed to identify drivers and barriers to reshoring strategies. Findings indicate that the poor product quality of offshored production and the adoption of automated production systems at the home country are the most relevant reshoring drivers. The study confirms the extant literature, identifing more drivers than barriers.
