For the most exciting journey in our history, we need the right business partners. We are looking for suppliers that meet our high expectations on value, efficiency and innovation - while supporting our core values regarding safety, quality and environment – to ensure that we together build a sustainable future. This also includes social responsibility and taking care about people in the complete value chain in line with our sustainability program Omtanke.
The Volvo Cars Supplier Portal is a place where we communicate and share useful information with our suppliers so that we work together as effectively as possible. We invite all our suppliers to apply for access.
We divide our business into direct material suppliers (delivering production materials for the manufacturing of our products) and indirect purchasing suppliers (other products and services needed to run our business).
