Purchase correctly – freight services in focus

As a public authority, the University’s purchases are reviewed by the Swedish Competition Authority. The latest review showed, among other things, that freight services are purchased to such an extent that the services must be procured

As an employee of Lund University, it is important to use the right procured supplier in the purchase of goods and services. The procured framework agreement for freight services applies the ranking below.

  1. DHL Express
  2. Your Special Delivery Service
  3. World Courier

When ordering, the no 1 ranked supplier in the framework agreement is to be contacted first. If no 1 cannot deliver, the request is made to the next supplier on the list.

The Finance Division has now reviewed compliance with the freight services agreement and it has been shown that not only are many goods and services ordered outside the agreement, but the ranking according to the current agreement is not followed.

The judgement resulting from the Swedish Competition Authority’s completed review has not been passed yet, but in several cases, the University may be liable to pay breach of procurement damages due to purchasing not being carried out in the correct way. The costs in these cases will be paid by the departments responsible for the breaches.

Additional information about the freight services agreement can be found on Lupin. If you have any questions, please contact hakan [dot] ericsson [at] eken [dot] lu [dot] se (subject: ) .
