AXN Heavy Duty: Offshore insourcing

From the June 2012 issue.

US-Chinese company AXN Heavy Duty, tells Global Trailer how offshore insourcing can be a viable solution.

Some would argue that AXN is a typical US company, supporting the local community and committed to growth and prosperity. AXN’s strength, however, is based on a business model that is less typical – offshore insourcing.
