Due to unique task characteristics, different location requirements exist, which ultimately lead to unique location considerations. Based on our research, five decision factors are identified for service offshoring: wages, education, infrastructure, cultural distance, and corruption. Considering these decision factors, efficiencies for the offshoring locations are computed with a data envelopment analysis from a German point of view. The research concludes that the most efficient service offshoring countries, with an average efficiency of 97 %, are the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
