How To Become A Partner
In order to secure strong supply chains, there are specific collaborative set-ups at every step of the supply chain. In order to become our partner we have specified our collaborative set up in either a Memorandum of Understanding or a more basic terms of Service agreement. We have identified four main categories of Partners, with each of these categories a subdivision of specific activities.
