Version 29


    Mercedes-Benz Group AG is one of the world's most successful automotive companies and is one of the leading global suppliers of premium cars.

    The success of our group is also our aspiration for the future: to remain a leading car manufacturer and to develop into a leading provider of mobility.  Partners from the supply industry make an important contribution to our success, through the cooperation with our group.

    As a potential supplier, you can become part of our global supplier network. The prerequisite is the fulfillment of the necessary requirements. If these are given, Mercedes-Benz Group  AG gives you the opportunity to send an unsolicited application for a possible collaboration.

    Before you apply, we ask you to read these requirements carefully. These are important to us because, in addition to a fair and trustful collaboration, we expect our suppliers to assume responsibility – just like we do ourselves.

    Your initiative application will be forwarded to the responsible procurement organization of the Mercedes-Benz Group AG and checked. Please understand that not every application leads to a cooperation.

    Requirements for a possible, joint collaboration:

    We have requirements that are very important to us.
    A fair and reliable collaboration with suppliers worldwide is the foundation of our success. We expect our suppliers to be as responsible as we are.

    Our Supplier Sustainability Standards are at the basis of all business relationships with suppliers. In order to achieve these standards in the global supply chains, we are in continual contact with our suppliers. We ensure compliance through regular checks.

    • Sustainability Guideline: Sustainability is one of the core principles in our corporate strategy and a touchstone of our entrepreneurial success. We take our group-wide sustainability strategy into account.
    • Purchase Conditions: Here you will find all the standards, policies and further information on the purchase conditions of the Mercedes-Benz AG/Daimler AG.
    • Compliance Training
    • DUNS-Number: In order to be approved you need to apply for a so-called D-U-N-S number (data Universal numbering system). You will receive the number free of charge via the universal identification system on the UPIK platform (unique partner identification key). Without a valid DUNS number, an application at our company is not possible.
