What should companies consider when choosing a global location for doing business?
In addition to the above-mentioned, companies should consider access to transportation infrastructure in diverse forms when choosing a global location for doing business. This includes ports, shipping routes, rail access, truck routes, air cargo terminals and the like. This is necessary for getting required materials for their manufacturing processes as well as for shipping finished product to different regions.
A company should also consider the proximity of the chosen location to suitable training facilities for the employees they will hire at the location. Will new hires require specialized computer or other training through an academic institution such as a university or college to be a good fit for the company's positions? If so, a company would want to be near quality education infrastructure, if they will not be handling specialized training in-house.
