TRAILPARTS renews "Shop Window" with UK Utility Buyers
Posted on 09-12-2015
TRAILPARTS has updated its ‘shop window’ with companies in the utilities sector by renewing its Achilles UVDB registration. Achilles Utilities Vendor Database is an online community that enables companies to manage supply chain risk and comply with EU regulations.
TRAILPARTS will be able to continue to share on the Achilles online platform its capabilities in key business areas, such as health and safety and compliance.
Achilles UVDB is used by over 1000 buyers from over 40 UK utilities companies to find suitably qualified suppliers. Achilles works to ensure suppliers’ information is accurate via data validation, and desktop and physical audits. Several buying organisations also use the community as an approved mechanism for tendering for contracts above and below EU threshold contracts – streamlining the procurement process.
Tom Grand, Regional Director for Achilles in the UK and Ireland, said: “By joining the biggest utilities supply chain risk management community in the UK, TRAILPARTS has put itself in the best position to be considered for work with UK utility buyers.”
