In an increasingly global competitive environment Schmitz Cargobull is confronted on a daily basis with new challenges which can only be taken on with the aid of a network of rapidly-acting partners. Within this, each member of the network must be able to rely on all of the others.
As the market leader in Europe, Schmitz Cargobull will continue to assert its leadership role and as such, focus on further enhancing its quality levels, even under the continued cost pressure which dominates the market.
With this in mind, we aim to constantly exceed the quality demands of our customers and to continually raise the level of our quality performance through constant improvement.
You, as a supplier, are an integral and crucial element of the Schmitz Cargobull network and, thereby provide a vital contribution to the common implementation of these ambitious quality goals. For this reason we expect that you, as our supply partner, exceed our quality requirements and demonstrate a clear sense of commitment towards a constant, continued improvement in your quality performance.
We believe a certified QM system to ISO/TS 16949 to be appropriate for this end.
Before you become a new supplier and partner for Schmitz Cargobull we need to have the following information. We will carefully check this information and it will be treated confidentially and saved into our supplier database. In the future we may need to ask you further questions when required.
With the aid of this feedback form the supplier demonstrates, in the form of a self-assessment, the degree of maturity of his QM system. This information forms the basis for further common activities in the procurement process.
The quality requirements on suppliers to the Schmitz Cargobull Group are listed in this manual.
