DAF Trucks is a wholly-owned subsidiary of PACCAR Inc. The DAF Trucks N.V. purchasing organization is part of PACCAR Corporate Purchasing and goes under the name of PACCAR Purchasing Europe. It is responsible for the delivery of goods and services to production units in Eindhoven and Westerlo (DAF Purchasing) and to Leyland (Leyland Purchasing). The PACCAR Purchasing Europe organization is subdivided into Product Projects, Production Purchasing, Non-Production Purchasing, Parts Purchasing and Supplier Quality Assurance (SQA).
DAF wants to give substance to "Strategic Supply Management" in an effective, proactive and interdisciplinary manner, in the following five areas: Quality, Logistics, Know-how, Competitive position and Competitive position Price. The supplier must have a favourable market position and financial position & the total costs within the value chain must be competitive.

The work at the Department of Purchasing takes place in an inspiring and challenging environment. Correctly managing relationships with our suppliers is essential for our continuing success as a truck manufacturer. The strategic necessity for cost reduction must in part be achieved via the purchasing process. The Commodity Managers have a central role in this process. They are responsible for the overall procurement of an assigned product group. They act as the ‘spider in the web’ between external suppliers and the internal customers. They are responsible for a sound supplier selection and perform the contract negotiations. Their responsibility is to buy the necessary products subject to the most favourable conditions in terms of quality, price and delivery reliability. In addition, they constantly engage in conducting market research and benchmarking in order to respond quickly to new market trends.
