Bloomberg, available in Lippincott Library and Huntsman Hall, has data (when available) on a company's suppliers and customers. Use the SPLC function for a specific company -- i.e. to find Merck's suppliers, customers, and peers you'd type: MRK [Equity] SPLC [Go]

S&P Capital IQ also has supplier data. Come to the Yablon Financial Resources Lab in Lippincott Library. You will need a Wharton username and password to access this database.

Panjiva is a database of information from product suppliers worldwide. Supplier profiles include a company overview, shipment statistics, detailed list of buyers, breakdown of products, and a Panjiva supplier "rating". Search by product, supplier/ buyer company names, and industries.
