Metro Group is one of the largest global retailers, with outlets in 32 countries across Europe, Africa and Asia. Metro Group Buying Vietnam Office (MGB VN) is the buying office for the Metro Group in Vietnam, and is responsible for sourcing new suppliers and developing direct business for the group.
Locating and supplying unbeatable products for customers is one of the main missions of MGB and, as part of this, recruiting reliable and trusted suppliers is of the utmost importance. After learning that Tradegood could provide trusted supplier information with unmatched professional services in business matching, MGB VN sought assistance from Tradegood to find some reliable new suppliers in the Vietnamese textile industry.
After understanding MGB VN’s purchasing requirements, Tradegood shortlisted a select number of trusted suppliers for MGB and a private face-to-face business matching session was arranged in April at the Tradegood office in Vietnam. As with all other matching events, the meetings ran well and MGB VN expressed great interest in some of the samples presented by suppliers. They planned to visit those factories and then proceed to the next level of procurement.
MGB VN had a very good first experience of the Tradegood business matching service. They were also impressed by the powerful Tradegood database which provides verified facility profiles of suppliers with comprehensive information on facility compliance and qualifications, all of which helps them make smooth and fast purchasing decisions.
“With Tradegood, we can pre-screen suppliers who meet our requirements more precisely and get access to a large sourcing base.
“The private business-matching session that followed introduced us to some interesting suppliers and we will maintain contact with them in the future.”
