May 8th – 10th, 2018

The greatest minds in intermodal transportation

met in Manhattan Beach, CA to attend the CIE Manufacturing Vehicle Annual Trailer Seminar hosted by CIE Manufacturing with the theme this year of One Team One Dream: Connectivity in the Era of Globalization. The event was Sponsored by CIE Manufacturing Global Vehicle Division and co-hosted by Vanguard National Trailer USA, SDC Trailer, Marshall Lethlean, Vanguard National Parts, and LAG Trailers.

CIE Manufacturing Vehicle began its legacy

of bringing employees, customers, suppliers and industrial leaders together from all over the globe in 2004 in Shenzhen, China with the hope that inspiration and wisdom could intersect and relationships could be built that would bring innovation.

Since that time,

the internet has changed the speed of life, and globalization has brought both infinite opportunities and huge challenges. Thus, this year’s seminar sought to discern the influence of new technologies and how improved connectivity must be utilized for continued growth and understanding of the intersecting roles of manufacturer, supplier and customer in order to continue to create revolutionary products that meet customers changing needs.
