Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Cavewood Transport and United Carriers have failed to land the multi-millionpound Ministry of Defence tri-service freight distribution contract after the MoD pulled the plug on nine months of negotiations. Both tenders, and an in-house team, were deemed too expensive, despite beating competition from TNT Logistics and Swift Transport to the final bidding in September. The MoD's separate army, navy and air-force freight distribution operations will now retain the work.

Securicor Omega Logistics has won a five-year, £3m national distribution deal with tool maker Snap-On Tools. The contract will operate from Snap-On Tool's national distribution centre at Kettering.

TNT Autoparts Express, part of TNT Express Delivery Services, has clinched a three-year parts delivery contract with Honda worth around £1m. The three-year agreement will be for overnight distribution to Honda's 170 UK car dealerships.

Group 4 Nightspeed has won two distribution contracts worth around £200,000 with the Racal Group. Nightspeed will handle overnight deliveries for Racal Transcom and Racal Electronics.

TNT Sameday has been awarded a deal with NatWest Bank for the collection of cheques and paperwork from around 100 branches across the Midlands. A dedicated fleet will handle deliveries to NatWest's processing centre in Leicestershire.
