Why would it have to be a tactical mistake? Maybe it's no different than raising stops, or rolling puts, etc when world prices, currency ratios, and freight rates change. So maybe they are changing origins because doing so allows them to take advantage of something that may not have been available when the trade was initiated. If they can save enough money to make it worth doing then they do it, otherwise, they don't do it. Maybe it's a tactical mistake if they don't do anything?
