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 -- e.g., 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.  Wharton MBAs can also use S&P Capital IQ via MBA Career Management.

  • Search by company name.
  • From the left-hand menu, locate Business Relationships and select Suppliers.

Note: S&P Capital IQ is only available to Wharton users.

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.

You may also want to look for articles from trade publications which may mention a company's chain. Use ABI/INFORM Global and Business Source Complete.

  • Try searching for supply chain AND [your company's name].
