Warehouse space strategist, Bis Henderson Space, has taken yet another step into the right direction by being named a supplier on the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Storage, Distribution, Kitting and Associated Services (RM6282) Framework Agreement. As part of this agreement, Bis Henderson will have access to a wider pole of customers, having been awarded positions on three lots: Storage, Kitting and Fulfilment Solutions and Services, and Transport and Distribution.
“We’re delighted to be named as a supplier on this framework and to have the opportunity to build on our excellent track record working with Government and the Public Sector. As an SME, this framework agreement allows us to open up our services in storage, kitting and transport to Crown Commercial Services customers, which is pivotal to our business direction and growth,” said Steve Purvis, Managing Director at Bis Henderson Space.
The commercial agreement, which was launched this year in February and will last for four years, gives public sector organisations in the UK, such as central and local government authorities, emergency services and the NHS, access to a wide range of storage, distribution and kitting solutions and services. The agreement includes UK and international storage and transportation, quality control of items and specialist collection and delivery services.
The Crown Commercial Service is an executive agency of the Cabinet Office, supporting the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring goods and services. In 2020/21, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.04 billion, supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
For public sector organisations, the CCS agreement delivers significant and sustainable cost savings through its commercial activity and aggregated procurement arrangements. Suppliers are carefully evaluated during the tender process, and pre-agreed terms and conditions offer clients sound contractual safeguards.
The framework is available to all central Government departments and other UK public sector bodies, including local authorities, charities, executive agencies, the health sector, police authorities, fire and rescue services, education providers and the devolved administrations.
