We align with suppliers who can provide quality products to help our customers.
Once selected, Grainger orders products from these suppliers to be shipped to the distribution centers. From there, products are sent either directly to customers the same day the order is placed, typically via UPS, or to one of Grainger's branches to replenish their stock.
As the leading North American distributor of industrial supplies, our suppliers are critical to our success. Together, we help customers save time and money by providing them with the right product at the right time.
By teaming up with Grainger, suppliers can instantly access more than 1 million Grainger customers, ranging from small companies to national corporations in various market segments, including industrial, manufacturing, government, commercial, and contractor markets.
Suppliers also benefit from having their products and brands promoted in Grainger's marketing vehicles, including our general catalog, several specialty catalogs, sales force and web site.
We work with suppliers to provide a continuous flow of accurate and timely performance information to ensure a smooth supply chain. Every year, we recognize suppliers who have met or exceeded our rigorous performance metrics.
