Supply Chain Connectivity Forums

The objective of the Supply Chain Connectivity Forums is to bring large transit Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and smaller, qualified and interested U.S. manufacturers together in an effort to facilitate the use of a higher percentage of domestic suppliers in transit products and systems. The Forums offered a venue for smaller manufacturers to learn what products were needed and find out more about investments they need to consider when entering the transit industry.

As part of the Forums, time is allocated for ten-minute introductory, private meetings between participating OEMs and prospective suppliers. Participating suppliers can include both current transit industry suppliers, and potential new suppliers. These are not intended to be deal negotiation meetings – these are private introductory meetings to discuss the basics of participating in OEM supply chains.
