Competitive bidding process sees APCOA win Bromley and Bexley contract
The London Boroughs of Bromley and Bexley have jointly awarded APCOA with a new ten year parking contract.
Following a competitive tender process, APCOA’s commitment to continuous improvement and excellent service delivery was among the main factors contributing to the award of the new contract.
APCOA’s Managing Director Kim Challis is thrilled to be working with the London Boroughs
Kim Challis; APCOA’s Regional Managing Director for UK & Ireland, said: “We’re hugely excited to begin this major new partnership with the London Boroughs of Bromley and Bexley. This contract award is a major vote of confidence in APCOA’s services within the parking industry.
Kim added: “I am thrilled that together we can take the opportunity to introduce and develop the new technologies that are evolving within the industry.”
Ben Stephens, Head of the Shared Parking Service (London Boroughs of Bromley and Bexley) said: “We are committed to providing customer service to the highest of standards and look forward to working with APCOA to maintain these standards and enhance our services into the future.”
The contract challenges the current status quo by providing the two boroughs with harmonised services
Bromley and Bexley became a shared service in 2013. To date, these authorities have utilised the services of separate contractors to undertake parking enforcement and other related duties while existing contracts ran their terms. The new joint contract, which will commence in April 2017, will help to further harmonise the procedures and processes of both authorities and produce efficiency savings.
APCOA’s responsibilities on behalf of two authorities will include; on and off street enforcement, sign and road marking maintenance, cashless parking administration, permit scheme operations, school crossing patrol governance and third party supplier/supply chain management.
