COVID-19: supporting micro and small suppliers

Dear Suppliers,

We are conscious that the COVID-19 crisis might impact your business during the coming weeks and months. We want to be mindful of this challenging situation. Therefore we are offering the opportunity to our micro and small suppliers in need to request expedited payment of outstanding and forthcoming invoices, to shorten payment terms for new orders and invoices during the duration of the crisis.

To ease the implementation of shortened payment terms, you can help us by sending your invoices electronically (preferably via our Ariba channel on which you will be automatically onboarded or via pdf).
