395366-2012: UK-Cardiff: Hire of goods-transport vehicles with driver

The Environment Agency Wales, Forestry Commission and Countryside Council for Wales are approaching organisations with a view to awarding contracts for the provision of Low Loaders and HGV Lorries. The contracts will initially be for a one year period, with the option to extend contracts for a further 3 years, subject to satisfactory price and performance reviews.
The framework will be awarded by the Natural Resources Body for Wales (NRB) and will be utilised by the legacy functions of the three organisations detailed above. With this in mind there may be changes to the provision of the services required dependent on developments when the NRB is vested on the 1.4.2013.
It is envisaged that two distinct areas will form the core of the contract as follows
Low Loaders with Driver.
Lorries with driver.
The contract will be further subdivided into the 4 operational boundaries of the Welsh Region. They are North West Wales, North East Wales, South East Wales and South West Wales. Tenderers may tender for either a single area or any combination of areas, based on their ability to provide an adequate service.
The proposed requirements identified are but not limited to
Low Loaders
Rock Body
Hiab arm
Artic Lorries
Users may require vehicle hire, shortterm, mediumterm and longer term hire (up to a year). Certain vehicles will need to be available on a 24hours a day, 7 days a week basis.
