Suppliers Relationship 

Groupe CAT’s Purchasing department is dedicated to building lasting relationships with both current and prospective customers.

With the ever-increasing demands of our customers and a contribution from suppliers representing more than 75% of our turnover, the competitiveness, quality and loyalty of our suppliers are crucial issues.

In this context, our role is to select and integrate the best suppliers in line with the needs of our group, in the primary objective of strict compliance with the commitments made with our customers.

The main purchasing families are: transport of vehicles and goods; road, maritime, railway or inland waterway transport services; handling; trucks and trailers; cross docking services; intellectual services, etc.

We act in strict compliance with our “Code of Conduct” and our “Sustainable Purchasing Charter” for the strict observance of ethical rules as well as applicable laws and regulations in all countries. We base our business relationships on fairness, loyalty and trust and with the goal of building strong and long-lasting relationships with our suppliers.

Our teams act with integrity as a principle in our relationships to avoid any conflict of interest between the professional and personal fields.

We work with our suppliers in a resolutely results-oriented and profit-oriented approach.
