Every year, PostNord purchases goods and services for about SEK 20 billion from approximately 26,000 suppliers. We have a central function for group-wide procurement, tasked with enhancing PostNord’s profitability by using a simple, efficient, group-wide purchasing process.
In our role as a major purchaser, we have both the opportunity and the obligation to make demands on suppliers with respect to sustainability. In each procurement contract, we want our suppliers and any subcontractors to comply with criteria regarding safety, quality, and the environment. PostNord suppliers must live up to our demands and must present the best offer in terms of overall cost.
PostNord Group’s Code for Suppliers describes the areas which are most important to us for responsible actions.
Since we place demands on our suppliers, they must be able to trust us as a customer. Our procurements must be conducted objectively and in a business-like manner. We must keep our purchasing processes and supplier relationships up-to-date by using statistics and follow up. We strive to achieve a highly ethical purchasing process.
