On December 17, 2002, Garuda Indonesia introduced a new online bidding and procurement system that is expected to save the airline some US$ 4 million dollars each year.
Using an online e-auction approach to purchasing supplies necessary for the carrier's operation, the latest change in procurement procedures will eventually cover everything from the Airline's fuel supplies to guest amenities offered to passengers.
Garuda claims the new procurement system will put them in immediate contact with over 150,000 general suppliers and some 30,000 suppliers selling services and goods for the airline industry and provide a system that is efficient and transparent.
