(Reuters) - Cummins Inc CMI.N said it expects $250 million tariff-related costs in 2019, which the company would try to offset with pricing and improvements in its supply chain.
The U.S. engine maker said $150 million of the total impact is from direct tariffs, while $100 million is from an increase in metal prices.
The United States and China are locked in a spiraling trade war in which they have slapped several rounds of tariffs on each other’s imports.
