A new refrigerated trailer is about to become available in the US. The trailer panels are manufactured in China by China International Marine Container Co (CIMC) and then assembled in the US. The panels use painted aluminum skins with an insulating foam core. CIMC is the largest manufacturer of containers in the world…
