ABSTRACT
The article identifies several customer service strategies which truck manufacturers in North America. The challenge of manufacturing is affected by the lack of funding worldwide. In China, the cheap labor market makes the workforce complacent and lazy. Some manufacturers embraced the challenge against well-paying jobs. Thus, the manufacturing industries should offer substance and value to their customers. The development of a global concept to compete globally includes the culture of respect and accountability.
