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. SAP Ariba 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 or receipt confirmations and monitor the status of documents.  

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 Ariba 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.

Your current SAP data from SNCB is uploaded or migrated towards SAP Ariba. It is possible that this data is outdated or partly missing. Please correct the data and fill the required empty fields. It is possible that you need to insert additional data. This data update makes sure that SNCB has the latest actual data on your company.

Subsidiaries usually join the network on the main SAP Ariba Network ID of the company. If your subsidiaries are organized independently, you may request the SAP Ariba Network to create different SAP Ariba accounts with different Ariba Network IDs (AN ID). You also need to inform SNCB that you will be transacting through multiple IDs .  For more details and guidance on how to make this request, please contact: [email protected].

The standard account is free of charge. There are no initial costs when enrolling to the SAP Ariba Network. When creating a new SAP Ariba account, you will automatically create a free standard account. However, you do have the possibility to upgrade your account to an enterprise account if preferred. Details are found here.

Please send an e-mail to [email protected]. Our team will send you a link that will allow you to reconnect to your account with the correct AN ID.

Please contact our team at [email protected]. Our team will tell you who the designated "administrator" is. If you wish to use an account for which "x" is the administrator, you will need to contact this person so that they can add you to the account's users. If the person doesn't get back to you, is no longer with the company, or if you simply want to create your own account, simply ignore these accounts and choose to proceed to the next step. Your account will be created and you'll be taken straight to the registration form.

The form is not accessible from your Ariba account. To access it, please click on the link sent to you by e-mail. To do this, log out of Ariba and click on the link in the e-mail. This will take you to a page where you can register or log in. Log in and you'll go straight to the form.

It's not possible to access the tender while you're logged in and looking for it, so you'll have to follow the link in the e-mail. So make sure you're logged out of Ariba first, then click on the link, you'll be taken to a page asking you to register or log in, log in and you'll go straight to the event.

In general, the administrator has no problem, nor does anyone who has already logged in. Please contact [email protected]. The Ariba team will send you an e-mail mentioning who the administrator of the company's Ariba account is. The administrator will then add your account to the list of users to allow you access to the tender..
