Traffic store run with TSC

Traffic store run with TSC

Highways England is using the NEC3 Term Service Contract (TSC) to operate its national warehousing and logistics service for traffic technology equipment.

The critically important service is provided from a warehouse on the West Hallam Industrial Estate near Ilkeston in Derbyshire under a TSC option A (priced contract with price list) by XPO Logistics. The three-year £5.1 million contract was awarded in April 2017.

Known as the National Technology and Logistics Centre, the warehouse stocks components for Highways England’s 40 000 roadside technology assets. These include traffic signals, electronic signs, closed-circuit television cameras, weather monitors, cables and other telecommunications systems linking roadside assets to regional control centres.

Operating collaboratively under the TSC, XPO stores and distributes components to Highways England’s eight regional depots on a weekly basis. The warehouse also houses specialist repair and testing services, for which XPO provides logistical support.

NEC is Highways England’s preferred contract suite. Most of its road schemes, collaborative delivery frameworks and asset delivery contracts use NEC3 contracts.
