One of our major clients in the transport sector, has beaten off stiff competition to win three separate tenders in different London and Kent borough council areas, thanks to the specialist bid-management support of Thornton & Lowe.

Our team of in-house tender writers have been working closely with the client, providing real-time tender support and guidance for tenders providing special needs education transport, minibus and coach services.

Thornton & Lowe are experts in the sector, working with transport service providers since 2012 in Manchester, London and the south east, to win multi-million pound contracts with local authorities and NHS trusts, achieving a fantastic success rate of 76%.

Working on a transport tender that supports vulnerable groups of people, it is vital that the submission highlights and evidences their proven track record in delivering the same services to a range of authorities across London and the surrounding areas, as well as their sound financial standing and technical expertise.
