Common-Mutual

Hi there,

I would like some help for this sentence :

" The benefits of using a common supplier to buy parts. "

I think the word common is not exactly what I want. Something like mutual would fit better, but I'm talking about more than 2 parts, and usually you find the word mutual to reconcile only 2 things.

Maybe it's better to say...

The benefits of conciliating suppliers to buy parts

    "Mutual" and "common" are not perfect synonyms anyway. "Mutual suppliers" would be companies that supply to each other - in other words, each one provides and receives supplies. Unless every company is simultaneously a supplier and a recipient of supplies, "mutual" would be wrong.
