Goodyear hires procurement company

Jan. 31, 2006

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has hired procurement services provider ICG Commerce to help manage "a broad spectrum of procurement processes, including strategic sourcing, savings implementation, transaction processing and on-going category management," say ICG Commerce officials.

"Goodyear's corporate sourcing team has already established significant savings opportunities through their on-going strategic sourcing efforts.

"ICG Commerce's role is to ensure that the savings opportunities born from these efforts are fully realized; to identify and implement additional savings opportunities in indirect buying categories; and to drive year-over-year cost improvements."
