The company also strives to form a sales and service network radiating the Northeast China, Northwest China, Southeast China and South China markets around Shandong as the center, so as to fulfill the objective of "rapidly penetrating into the market with a nationwide sales network".
In the future, Jiuzhou will embrace a new strategic objective by means of brand output, capital output, management mode output, talent and technology input, information input and profitability mode input. Jiuzhou will form a strategic layout of "Seven Bases around One Center" and truly accomplish the concept of "Four Unified and Four Nearby", namely "unified brand, technology, standard and service" and "nearby production, delivery, sales and service", thus better serving customers from across the country. Jiuzhou will build itself into the only trailer producer in China that applies group-based nationwide layout in the next three years. By sticking to the mission of producing lightweight trailers and positioning itself and its products in the prosper market, Jiuzhou will always bear the promise of becoming an explorer and practitioner of lightweight trailers.
