global sourcing

Popular Terms
A procurement strategy in which a business seeks to find the most cost efficient location for manufacturing a product, even if the location is in a foreign country. For example, if a toy manufacturer finds that manufacturing and delivery costs are lower in a foreign country due to lower wages of foreign employees, the company might close the domestic factory and use a foreign manufacturer. See also outsourcing, international procurement organization (IPO)
