Frequently Asked Questions
How do we screen our suppliers?
Modern shipbuilding is all about teamwork, which means our success also depends on our suppliers. We like to get to know our partners beforehand to make sure our cooperation can get off to a flying start. That’s why our Supplier Management department will ask you to firstly provide general information about your company. You will also have to attach the relevant certificates and documents for your line of work. If everything is approved, you will then have to go through a qualification test process with all your future contacts at MEYER WERFT. This initial exchange of information can be quite time-consuming, but our partners are generally rewarded with long-term cooperation perspectives.
How do I register my staff?
Can the employees of suppliers use the common rooms at the shipyard?
Yes. Workers employed by our suppliers can use our staff rooms, sanitary facilities and lockers. We charge a flat rate of 1.50 EUR / person / day.
Where can I park?
MEYER WERFT has a car park with 600 spaces for its suppliers. It can be accessed via Bokeler Straße. Please allow plenty of time to find a parking space – the use of the car park and access road can vary significantly
Should I announce my delivery?
Yes. Please register your delivery, so that we can plan accordingly and ensure quick unloading. Please let us know the delivery date and share any specific details, such as if you’ll need a crane. You can do this by sending an informal email to our Incoming Goods department: email@example.com.
When can I deliver?
We accept goods at our central warehouse from Mondays to Fridays between 7am and 5pm. Other times apply on public holidays, at weekends and during company holidays. If you would like to make a delivery outside our regular opening hours, please send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All other information on deliveries can be found in our Delivery Guidelines.
How can I confirm an order?
Can I also send my invoice via email?
Yes. This is possible, but you will first have to register for digital invoice processing. You can do this by sending an email to email@example.com. Your email must contain the following information: company name, company address, VAT Number, bank details with IBAN and BIC, contact for enquiries, and email address for invoices. Please let us know which MEYER Group company you work for. If you work for several companies in our Group, please repeat this process for each company. This is necessary, because each company is a separate legal entity. Please send all invoices in PDF format to ensure their smooth processing.
