The Cummins Global Packaging Standards have gone
through a major update to clarify and simplify the requirements for all
Production and Aftermarket Parts Packaging being shipped to Cummins
sites. These standards should be used as the design guide as the Supplier
plans and designs the packaging for parts being shipped to Cummins locations.
This Standard highlight unique requirements of Cummins plants and part distribution centers (PDC) that
are not covered in the respective Global Packaging Standards (GPS).
The purpose of this standard is to provide ergonomic guidelines for the design and renovation of manufacturing and logistics facilities work areas. These ergonomic recommendations focus on work area design in order to fit the job to the worker to prevent injuries and disorders. The goal of ergonomics is to make the work area fit the operator instead of making the operator fit the work area.

As markets and cash flows continue to improve, we have now implemented a new global payment term standard of Net 90 Days (N90). This change is effective immediately for all new business awards or new contracts, except where differing regional norms or government requirements exist.
