Offshoring - Offshoring describes the relocation by a company of a business process from one country to another – typically an operational process, such as manufacturing, or a supporting processes. Companies subcontracting in the same country would be outsourcing, but not offshoring.

Nearshoring - Nearshoring means sourcing service activities to a foreign, lower-wage country that is relatively close in distance or time zone (or both). Nearshoring is understood to mean that the business has reduced the complexity and risk of offshoring.
