Manufacturing in the same continent cannot work because not all the product can be manufactured at one place due to various reasons including price. Today supply chain is very important for any manufacturing or consumer company. Most of the time a product makes 2-3 roundtrips from the manufacturing location to assembly to the final destination.

Another new idea is to make porduct in same continent near growth center or near consumer . This will provide good work opportunity to locals and will reduce unnecessary logistic.

Since we are talking about logistics, companies should know the demand and supply rates of the markets they supply to, and if synchronization between the first delivery of the goods and the probability of when the next shipment should be done based on the consumption rates in the market is done, and then slow steaming won't be a problem. The only problem is that most logistics are deviant from their original market statistics, the reason is because most companies do a sample probability on a population rather than individual shipment consumption.
