Transport tenders are the driving force that keeps Australia moving.
Projects that move the nation
The transport sector has it all – it’s the industry that keeps our communities moving and our economy thriving. Offering mega projects that literally transform our cities, long-term programs of work that drive innovation and evolution, and the smaller projects that make a difference at a local level, there is something for businesses of every size and ambition.
With constant improvements, new tech, on-going maintenance, and steady expansion, the opportunities are both exciting and lucrative. But, with incredible opportunity and rewarding contracts comes big competition.
Transport tenders are some of the most highly contested bids in Australia, with local and international organisations vying for a piece of the pie. When you’re tendering in this space it’s important to put your best bid forward every time.
As Australia’s leading tender services business, we have worked on thousands of live tender opportunities for organisations of all sizes and across most sectors. We have made our name by winning some of Australia’s biggest contracts and from working with some of Australia’s best-known blue-chip companies. We’ve helped clients secure more than $160B of work and achieved a phenomenal success rate of 98.5%.

Winning tenders in the transport industry
The transport sector in Australia is an aggressive market with submissions coming from local and international contenders alike. There is a major drive for innovation across the sector but more than in many other sectors, transport projects need to achieve multiple objectives. Evaluators are seeking smart solutions that improve safety, drive whole-of-life value, deliver community outcomes and achieve sustainability targets. Bid teams need to be able to foster excellence across all criteria.
To help you achieve this, our team partners collaboratively with yours to workshop the project and its nuances, your solution and its differentiators, and the strategy that will not only result in a comprehensive tender response, but a highly polished and competitive pitch.
Our bidding experience reflects the full diversity and complexity of the transport sector including:
We help teams manage the complexity that comes with transport tenders
With so many engineering specialties under one roof, the bid team needs to communicate the technical information so that it’s accessible, readable and persuasive.
Transport projects make news. Bid teams need to know how to engage appropriately with the community, understand the potential political fallout of a decision and stack the bid with powerful stakeholder messages.
Emphasis on non-price criteria
Evaluators are seeking smart solutions that improve safety, drive whole-of-life value, deliver community outcomes, and achieve sustainability targets. Bid teams need to be able to foster excellence across all criteria.
Large multi-disciplinary teams
Large, multi-disciplinary teams bring extra challenges for bid coordination and team communication. Each discipline tends to dive deep into their area of expertise so the bid team needs to keep the focus on the client and align the disciplines to tell a compelling, persuasive and consolidated story.
Different companies, different values, different ways of working. It’s easy for a consortium-led bid to go off the rails. The bid team needs to align the team’s vision, agree on acceptable behaviours, establish clear expectations, and support the varying levels of capability within the team.
Drive to innovate
Many transport projects are visionary in nature – pushing the boundaries to deliver better outcomes and striving for new horizons in safety and performance. Bid teams need to be able to inspire and energise teams to imagine and engineer smarter solutions.
