Introducing TPPL: Our Fleet partner

Earlier in the year, NEPO announced a new partnership with The Procurement Partnership Ltd (TPPL) for the public sector’s fleet requirements.

The partnership gives Associate Members access to TPPL’s full range of compliant purchase and contract hire frameworks for vehicles and plant featuring market leading discount terms and additional benefits such as full tender support, maximised social value and technical expertise.

James Russell, Director of TPPL, said:

“We recognise that by blending public sector values with private sector ethos, we can maximise our members’ purchasing power, not just to save money but also to improve quality. We are delighted to have entered into this partnership and look forward to working with NEPO, its Member Authorities and Associate Members; to drive forward value for money procurement coupled with support and advice, as well as providing training and assistance for their suppliers in the North East."

Since the start of the agreement almost 200 vehicles have been ordered by NEPO Members. These include cars, commercial vehicles, buses, coaches and heavier specialist vehicles.
