Dear Mr. Minor,

Congratulations to you, Patrick Mendenhall, Matt Smart and the entire team at Cumberland International Trucks on winning the 2018 Sustainable Transportation Award from the Tennessee Department of Transportation and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.

I’ve always believed that working to protect the environment can be good for business, too. Sustainability ultimately reduces costs, which is good for everyone. The work you’ve done to improve the fuel economy of your trucks provides more evidence of that. And I can tell that you don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.

Thank you for your efforts to build a cleaner, greener, healthier state. If I’m elected governor on November 6, I’ll look forward to honoring more initiatives like this. Thank you for showing the way to the companies that will come along behind you.

From United States Representative Jim Cooper

RE: Tennessee Sustainable Transportation Award

Dear Mr. Smart:

Congratulations on Cumberland International being chosen by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) and Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) to receive the Tennessee Sustainable Transportation Award. The C10 Project by Cumberland International in Nashville, Tennessee creating a fleet-worthy semi-truck capable of reaching 10 miles per gallon of diesel fuel is remarkable. Cumberland International is commended for taking the lead in the transportation industry to develop and implement technology that will not only increase fuel efficiency for semi-trucks in Tennessee but to also prevent thousands of tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. These accomplishments will continue to make Tennessee a wonderful place to do business and raise our families.

Again, congratulations to the leaders of this project Terry Minor, Matt Smart and Patrick Mendenhall and the entire Cumberland International Trucks team! I look forward to working with you in the future.

Bill Lee
