Daimler Truck

Initiative Application Process

Daimler Truck AG is one of the most successful commercial vehicle manufacturers. As the largest manufacturer of trucks over six tons, we are present all over the world and build the right trucks for the respective markets. 

The success of  Daimler Truck is also our aspiration for the future: to remain a leading trucks and buses 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, Daimler Truck 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 Daimler Truck 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.

Without a valid DUNS number, an application at our company is not possible.
