Effective purchasing management brings advantages for buyers and sellers

We think competitively - even when purchasing.
It's in our interest to ensure that our selection procedures are fair. We make our decisions based on clear criteria that are comprehensible to all.

We also see them as an excellent opportunity for you, as our partner, together with Deutsche Post DHL Group, to increase your own competitive ability and growth.
We have given ourselves a strict set of ethical values to guide us in our business dealings. We expect all our suppliers to adhere to the same ethical principles.
