With over 7,000 locations and more than 60,000 people worldwide across 190 countries and territories, Cummins has sales of over $23.5 billion.


The Problem

Like many other businesses, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Cummins unfortunately also experienced major supply chain issues across its European warehouses. They also experienced issues due to The Ever Given blocking the Suez Canal in 2021.

With no solutions at hand, ITD were able to step in quickly and support its UK & European facilities.


How We Helped

We stepped in and supported Cummins both on service and communication levels with all their European facilities, in transitioning, arranging & managing containers from Mainland China into the UK & Europe via Rail Freight.

By offering a combination of block trains and daily departures from across 13 terminals in China, we were able to ensure that Cummins’ plants did not run into ‘Line Stop’.

We prepared and distributed across all of Cummins’ plants with daily reports of all live movements. We arranged daily Zoom meetings with each plant, allowing us to work closely with individual sites to ensure the continued smooth transit from start to finish.
