Fuji Xerox wins $27m toll notice contract

Fuji Xerox Australia has won a $27.7 million New South Wales Government contract to print and mail toll notices resulting from unpaid tolls on Sydney roads.

The NSW Roads and Maritime Services agreement with Fuji Xerox BusinessForce runs for 18 months until 30 November 2018.

“The contract is for the production of toll notices in Sydney and entails an integrated printing and mail house solution,” says a spokesperson for Roads and Maritime.

“There are millions of unpaid toll notices that go out every year. People without a tag can travel on multiple motorways every day, to and from work, and when you think about the massive amounts of trips every year on many networks of motorways, it’s easy to see how it all starts to add up. Over 150,000 journeys can be made on one motorway in a single day.

“With a contract of that size, you’d imagine a fair bit of it would be for postage.”

The estimated $27,720,000 deal is a continuation of Fuji Xerox’s previous contract with the agency.

    Why do printers purchase their machines?
    They are a competitor!

    Do these people not Google? How could any government department trust FX with a contract of that size given what’s unfolding in New Zealand and Australia? Crazy.

    @Banksy probably because as the article states, this is a continuation of an existing contract. What this probably means is the penalty clauses of breaking the contract are so onerous that the Government decided to roll over on it. After all, that’s pretty much how FX operate according to the reports.
    It;s about time an industry watchdog or Government stepped in to stop the sharp practices of these firms. The biggest killer for small businesses is when the so called Master Agent rocks up offering to reduce their monthly payment then rolls over their existing lease into a longer one and lumbers the unsuspecting business owner with a $60,000 debt on a piece of equipment worth $10k if they’re lucky.
    This is what’s funding the whole industry and it stinks here in Australia.
    Almost every one of the top companies in this industry has Honesty % Integrity as a core value and yet they happily outsource their Brand to self employed snake oil salespeople to trash – it really is bizarre!
