Courier Services

Working in collaboration with our partner YPO, we are combining the requirements of the recently expired National Courier Services (RM1006), Dedicated Courier Services (RM963) and Seasonal Courier Services (RM1008) framework agreements into 2 new frameworks agreements: 

  • Courier Services (awarded February 2017)
  • Specialist Courier Services OJEU released 25 April 17 

Our aim is to provide customers with a market leading commercial solution for all their total courier requirements to improve value, benefits and savings for the public sector.

This approach has been developed following customer stakeholder engagement and initial engagement of the market.

We will update the important links below at each stage of the project, adding to this page as information for buyers and suppliers is released.
