How to win transport tenders

With a remit spanning several key areas, it can sometimes be complicated to understand the specific requirements of each individual bid. As with all tenders, councils are usually looking to see suppliers going above and beyond the requirement and what value for money they can get due to cuts in spending.

Innovation is also key across the transport industry, with increasing pressure to be more environmentally friendly, this should be a key consideration for any tender. Understanding and researching your competitors and the wider market becomes an important element of this, as gaining a competitive advantage will naturally put you ahead of the rest.
