    Update on February 28th, 2022.

    Dear IPS business partners,


    Due to the spin-off of Daimler Truck AG from December 1st, 2021, we would like to inform you about the further cooperation with our experts from the IPS procurement division:

    • Initially, Mercedes-Benz Group AG remains responsible for the procurement business of non-production material. Until April 1st, 2022, Daimler Truck AG and Mercedes-Benz Group AG will continue to work together in a so-called “procurement cooperation”.
    • After the spin-off of Daimler Truck AG from December 1st, 2021, to February 28th, 2022, your IPS contact persons may change as of March 1st, 2022. If this is the case, your new IPS contact persons will contact you soon.
    • On February 1st, 2022, Daimler AG became Mercedes-Benz Group AG. As a result, the email addresses of your contact persons are gradually being changed from @daimler.com to @mercedes-benz.com. Receiving emails with @daimler.com addresses will remain active until November 30th, 2022. 
    • Please note that as of December 1st, 2021, Mercedes-Benz Group AG and Daimler Truck AG are separate companies. As part of the procurement cooperation, your IPS contact persons are authorised to process sensitive data from both sides under antitrust law until March 31st, 2022. However, this does not apply to your contact persons outside of procurement. Please note this at any time when passing on information to Daimler Truck AG and Mercedes-Benz Group AG. In case of doubt, please consult your own antitrust contact persons in advance and pay attention to the separate disclosure of information. 

     Thank you very much for taking note. We are looking forward to continuing of our partnership-based cooperation with you.

     

     Sincerely,


     International Procurement Services
