The contract with Clipper Logistics was put in place by Supply Chain Coordination Ltd, the management function of NHS Supply Chain, via a sub-contract with its existing primary logistics supplier. This was for an initial three-month period from March to June at a value of £1.3 million (monthly extensions at estimated values of £450,000) for storage and distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE) to all National Health Service trusts. This contract was subsequently varied for a three-month period from May to July at a value of £1.95 million (monthly extensions at estimated values of £650,000) to provide an eCommerce solution involving an eBay platform for the storage and distribution of PPE by Clipper to care homes, pharmacies and general practitioner surgeries.
