ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the impact of global economic changes on the U.S. trailer manufacturing industry. Trailer manufacturers and suppliers alike in the country can expect to feel the impact of international competition. Foreign companies increasingly will target U.S. markets, who will compete for commodities, bidding up the price for materials such as steel, nickel, aluminum and hardwood.
