EU flag Courier Services

Our courier services framework agreements provide access to a number of suppliers offering an extensive range of logistic and courier services. The frameworks are available for a 3 year duration with the option of one 12 month extension.Government Procurement Service has worked in close collaboration with HM Revenue & Customs, The Home Office, Veterinary Laboratories Agency and other government departments to develop a series of framework agreements to aggregate public sector demand and enable organisations to call off a range of requirements quickly and cost effectively.

The framework agreements are compliant with EU procurement directives, allowing customers to bypass the time and costs involved in conducting a full procurement exercise themselves.The courier services offering encompasses a multi-source option which gives customers extensive choice and the facility to run a mini-competition, dependent upon their operational requirements and profile.
