Delta recently launched an enhanced supplier registration portal and locator system to help grow its base of small and diverse-owned suppliers.

The updated system makes it easier for small and diverse-owned firms worldwide to do business with the airline through several features, including:

  • Ability for prospective suppliers to quickly register with Delta and easily update their profiles
  • Advanced methods for Delta to research and identify small and diverse-owned firms
  • Enhanced tools allowing Delta to encourage suppliers to register, as well as reminders for suppliers to update their certifications

Kimberly Coffman, Manager–Supplier Diversity, said the upgrades will enable such businesses to directly connect with Delta's Supply Chain Management and Supplier Diversity teams.

"The new system more effectively allows Delta to locate qualified small business, minority, women, veteran, LGBT and other diverse-owned companies to participate in our sourcing process," she said. “It also ensures the continuity and sustainability of our diverse base of suppliers.”
