You must register to continue doing business with SNCB in the future. We implement new standards and processes to improve our collaboration and transactions with our suppliers. It eliminates manual errors and increases transparency for you as our supplier and for us.

Via the platform, you can respond to tenders, monitor contracts, receive orders, approve orders, send order confirmations, send invoices and monitor the status of documents. This will be rolled out by SNCB in 2023.

Registration is an obligation. You can not continue to do business or participate in tenders with SNCB if you do not register (which is free of charge).

SNCB will send existing suppliers an invitation to register (via e-mail) in the course of 2022 and 2023. When you are invited to join the SAP Business Network, you can choose to register with a new login & password or with existing credentials. Clicking on the SNCB invitation and registering with existing credentials will make the connection between your existing account and SNCB.
