Registering in the VW Group's B2B Supplier Platform is a mandatory prerequisite for business cooperation with all companies within the VW Group.
D-U-N-S (Data Universal Numbering System) – a unique global nine-digit identification symbol introduced and operated by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B).
D&B, a global corporation active in the market since 1841, maintains the largest B2B database in the world. By using D-U-N-S numbers, it is able to keep track of relationships between parent and subsidiary companies, and between head offices and branches. A D-U-N-S number, as a unique identifier of commercial entities, is the worldwide standard in corporate identification.
How do you get a D-U-N-S number?
If you don’t have or don’t know your D-U-N-S number, register at http://www.dnb.com/ . Alternatively, contact your local Dun & Bradstreet branch – click on the globe icon, find the country your company comes from, and contact the local branch of Dun & Bradstreet.
