"Overall, the award is a true compilation of the hard work and dedication put forth by all members of the Cummins team who strive daily to deliver a better product for each and every customer."

The survey specifically highlighted certain attributes of Cummins leadership in heavy-duty truck engine technology, including fuel efficiency, performance and reliability, stated a release issued by the engine maker.
