A new Courier Services framework will provide central government and public sector customers with a quick and easy route for buying courier services.
After establishing that public sector organisations required a consistent, EU compliant route to the market for the provision of courier services, the framework, released by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), in collaboration with YPO, offers services covering the collection and delivery of documents and parcels, secure services for sensitive and high value consignments and secure collection, storage and delivery of examination papers.
In addition to this, the framework will run services across dedicated networks and ensure the secure screening of internal mail, working towards continued improved efficiency and savings.
According to CCS, over 50 per cent of the suppliers are small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), which supports the government’s ongoing pursuit for £1 in every £3 to be spent with SMEs by 2020.
