Description of the goods or services required
The ONS is looking to identify and engage with industry partners to help bring third party data and/or expertise to access better and more relevant data sources. This will help improve the quality and usefulness of official statistics about our population, society and economy that decision makers, businesses and citizens so urgently need.

o Revenue from carrying rail freight through the Eurotunnel
o Average freight rate per tonne
The types of organisations that should consider contacting us include:
o Rail freight carriers licensed to freight goods through the Eurotunnel
o Organisations that compile data, based on rail freight carriers licensed to freight goods through the Eurotunnel
Types of support could include:
Permission to responsibly scrape data from websites, or to use public APIs
Provision of private APIs or other arrangements for retrieving data
Supply of bulk data extracts
Supply of relevant metadata and/or documentation on how data enters the system and how it is processed.

What can a partnership with ONS offer?
An opportunity to work with a world class statistics organisation, to create better and more timely statistics to be used by all for the benefit of the public good.
