HM Customs and Excise has shortlisted seven organisations to go through to the next stage of the procurement process for the forthcoming Lorry Road-User Charge (LRUC) scheme. LRUC will deliver the Government’s manifesto commitment to ensure that all lorries using UK roads, irrespective of nationality, contribute on a fair and equal basis towards the costs they impose.
The procurement is divided into three Service Packages, which are essentially three parallel tenders: Charging Data Services; Enforcement Services and Central Services. Three bidders have been selected to compete within each Service Packages tender.
Serco Ltd, Siemens plc and T-Systems International have been selected to supply bids for the Charging Data Services contract.
Autostrade S.p.A, Serco Ltd and TraCS Consortium are the three bidders for the Enforcement Services contract.
Capita Group plc, IBM (UK) Ltd and Siemens plc have been selected to bid for the Central Services contract.
