As the reshoring debate intensifies, OOCL has outlined the scale of the challenges of moving production out of China to regions such as South-east Asia.

The Cosco Shipping-owned company’s deputy finance officer, Michael Fitzgerald, told The Financial Times the shift of production was happening, but due to the scale of China’s production, significant change could take years.
