Abstract [en]

This paper determines how operational capabilities influence reshoring decision-making based on proximity make-buy alternatives in apparel supply chains in high-cost locations. By drawing operational capabilities from reshoring literature, a hierarchical model is constructed and tested using fuzzy AHP in a workshop with industry and academia. The priority weights for 12 capabilities categorized into three criteria influences the four reshoring alternatives in the order: make-onshore, make-nearshore, buy-onshore, buy-nearshore. Sourcing/production capabilities were the most important criteria followed by value-added products/services. Relationship was least important but its underlining aspects: availability of skilled labor/know-how and flexible supplier relationship were necessary preconditions for reshoring.
