Contact Accounts Payable

Cummins Inc. defines the products and services purchased from suppliers in two different buckets:

  • Indirect is defined as all services and any products that are not assembled and shipped to an end customer (including tooling, chemicals, machinery, computers, gages, packaging, training, real estate, and prototypes, etc.)
  • Direct is defined as all products that are manufactured and assembled into a product which is directly shipped to a customer (includes engine components, filters, turbochargers, generators, alternators, etc.)

With the exception of utilities, the procure-to-pay flow for all categories require a three-way match, including a Purchase Order (PO), Receipt, and an Invoice.

To ensure prompt payment, the following should occur:

  1. Purchase Order (and/or Material Release for direct products) issued in advance of work starting or product shipping
  2. Accurate and comprehensive paperwork provided for receipt by Cummins Inc.
  3. Accurate invoice which matches the PO and includes the Cummins-issued PO number

Payment Terms

The standard default payment terms for Cummins Inc. are 90 days. Suppliers in certain countries or with negotiated supplier agreements may be set-up for lesser terms upon the discretion of Cummins Purchasing.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

With EFT, payments can be electronically deposited directly into your company's designated bank account. We encourage your participation! If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the Cummins Accounts Payable department in the country where your products or services are used.​​​
