94,608,000 seconds of Daimler Supplier Magazine Online


Daimler Supplier Magazine Online has now been available for three years (or 94,608,000 seconds). What that means for you as a reader and for us can be found in our Fact Folio, and it will make you smile.

The special “Magical Moment”


About three years ago, the space probe “Dawn” reached the mini planet Ceres for the first time to explore the origin of the solar system. Around the same time, the editorial staff of Supplier Magazine also started a special mission – it was not about exploring, but rather about spreading. In 2016, the Daimler Supplier Magazine was successfully “shot” into the net as a digital version. It was, in a way, the magical moment of the “space ship DSMO” (Daimler Supplier Magazine Online), as you know it today.

The tip of the iceberg


It was a well-known fact since before the Titanic sank: 90% of the volume of an iceberg is below the surface of the water. And the more than 100,000 readers that the DSMO has reached over the past three years are just the tip of the iceberg. Given that many of the readers pass on the stories and those people continue to tell the stories, the magazine´s reach expanded to a dimension of unimaginable proportions.

Quality instead of quantity


4.08 meters is the back dimension of one of the thickest books in the world. It weighs the small amount of 220 kg. Its contents: Drawings and texts on, believe it or not, 50,506 pages. In all likelihood, it will take a little more time to capture the content of this PR gag that grabbed media attention.

It’s still all about keeping it short and sweet. This is exactly how an article is written in the DSMO. On average, almost 4,500 letters from the world of purchasing are told here. For an article is not eloquent if it bursts through all dimensions, but only if the content convinces with class.



The good old postcard has been around since the middle of the 19th century. Sometimes it still takes several weeks, in rare cases sometimes 5 months, until the small message reaches its addressee from some point on the earth. It’s a good thing that there is the Daimler Supplier Online Magazine. Here you can find current topics of Daimler procurement’s Cars & Vans, Trucks & Buses and Material & Services from all areas of the world: prompt and with fresh information.

Let’s celebrate with the stars!


Time to celebrate – because the first edition of the DSMO was published in January 2016. The new Daimler Supplier Magazine Online has done a lot in those three years. During these 1095 days, there has been a starry sky of articles, which has had something for everyone.

We would like to thank our readers for their loyalty. To the next 1,000 and more articles (and if you don’t want to miss any of them: sign up for our E-Mail newsletter now!). Best regards, your editorial team.
