Ipswich Borough Council requires 2 x 26t Trade Refuse Collection vehicles to replace 2 x current vehicles that have reached the end of their useful life.
The Crown Commercial Services Framework Agreement – RM6060 has been used to identify suitable vehicles. This framework allows a comparison of vehicle specifications, pricing and selection of the vehicle most appropriate. The best value vehicle was identified at a total cost of £326,002 for the two vehicles including the additional options specified.
The decision made was to purchase these vehicles from Mercedes Benz.
Reason: Replace aged and expensive to maintain vehicles
