MES analyzes the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s impact
What countries and industries stand to benefit the most?
COLUMBUS, OHIO—In MES Inc.’s continuing White Paper Series to share valuable lessons gained from our vast global sourcing and supply chain management experience, we’ve analyzed the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s impact. Our research assesses how and to what extent the TPP will affect the automotive, lighting, heavy machinery and energy equipment industries that we serve. We examine several factors, including:
• Intricacies of the global trade agreements
• Trade indicators such as tariffs
• Number of days and documents needed to import and export
• Container costs
• Rules of origin compared to NAFTA
• Trade surplus and deficits of the 12 countries involved
Our analysis emphasizes the United States’ position, identifies winners and losers and draws conclusions about what we can expect moving forward. Surprisingly, it also shows that China may not be as disadvantaged as originally thought due to its absence from the TPP negotiation table.
