Something big brewing at Cummins?


OD Equipment Editor Jack Roberts hits the road early next week to visit Cummins’ headquarters in Columbus, Ind. 

While the trip is not inherently out of the ordinary, he writes in a blog post on OD sister site CCJ, the timing is: Cummins had a room full of trucking industry reporters on hand for a presentation and dinner just a week ago at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. 

Less than two weeks after that trip, the company’s spending “its own money and time for a private event without any show induced distractions,” Roberts writes

Roberts hints Cummins could have a big announcement up its sleeve, or it may not. Either way, the timing, he writes, is unusual, “and my money is on something big — or at least something very interesting — going on in Indiana.”
