Circular economy is now on every lip, for a valid reason of course. But are we sure that this concept is clearly understood by all? Nothing is less certain, when some people are often only referring to recycling and waste management when talking about circular economy.

I am currently doing some research to find out if anyone has leased instead of purchased vehicle tyres for a contract for the supply of tyres for heavy and light goods vehicles.

Met die variant heb ik geen ervaring, wel loop ik tegen hetzelfde aan met de vooraankondigingen die ik recent geplaatst heb.
Mijn advies is om een klacht bij Tenderned in te dienen want bij vooraankondigingen en aankondigingen boven de 750k en inkooponderwerp vallend onder bijlage 14, is Tenderned niet goed ingericht. Bij het opstarten van aanbestedingen zou je meerdere keuzes in het begin van het aanmaken moeten hebben. bijvb. vooraankondiging of aankondiging, boven de dremp...
just a heads-up that the new GPP criteria are now available in 23 languages, to be found here:
The Swedish and German governments established a joint partnership to create electrified roads for hybrid trucks. As a result of an extensive public and private cooperation the world first e-motorway has been constructed in the Swedish Region Gävleborg. Since last year the German state Schleswig-Holstein is also testing the new technology on a 6km long part of the A1 motorway (and more states about to follow the practice).
