Become a Volvo Group supply chain partner

The Volvo Group aims to develop its suppliers as partners. We do this by selecting high performing supply chain partner that deliver the best possible products and superior services that add real business value to the Volvo Group, on both a global and regional basis. To achieve this we constantly monitor markets and evaluate new potential suppliers to find the most competitive ones in terms of quality, delivery, cost and feature.

Before applying, read our supplier requirements

The Volvo Group has high expectations of its suppliers. We require responsible business principles as outlined in our Code of Conduct and based on our values where customer success is key. Quality is more than quality assurance as the supplier must take responsibility for the effect on the environment and also take a holistic view of material handling and information exchange. Our suppliers need to actively contribute to reducing environmental impact and deploy ethical standards throughout the supply chain.

The evaluation process

After you have read our requirements and filled out the “Potential Supplier Information Form” located below, the following process will take place:

  • If you pass the initial screening of potential suppliers, you will be contacted by Volvo Group Purchasing to further evaluate whether your company profile corresponds to Volvo Group requirements.
  • At this stage you may be required to participate in a Supplier Evaluation Model (SEM) to verify that your company complies with Volvo´s Key Element Procedures (KEP).
  • If successful, and provided we have a need for sourcing components or services that match your company capabilities, you may receive a Request for Quotation (RfQ).
