Hull – city of culture, education and trade
Hull, short for Kingston upon Hull, is a port city on England’s east coast. P&O ferries regularly go from the King George Dock to Rotterdam and Zeebrugge making it an important destination for both business and private drivers. It is famous for being the birthplace of William Wilberforce who championed the abolition of slavery. Modern attractions include The Deep aquarium and the KCOM Stadium used for sport and music concerts. The city is home to leading football and rugby league clubs as well as the World Trade Centre Hull & Humber. It was UK City of Culture in 2017.
The challenges your drivers & vehicles face in Hull
Hull lies at the end of the M62 motorway linking Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds. Drivers actually take the A63 dual carriageway for the last stretch into the city. Other important routes include the A165, A1033, A1079 and A1165. The nearby Humber Bridge, once the longest single span suspension bridge in the world, crosses the Humber estuary providing a route originally only services by a ferry. The city comprises many varied districts including Hessle, Willerby, Southcoates, Kingswood and Bransholme. Transport between the various parts is made more complicated by the number of bridges and rail crossings that drivers need to negotiate.
Why is a fleet management solution particularly useful in a congested city like Hull? Due to heavy traffic during the day and specifically in peak hours, each vehicle spends about 35%¹ more on the road (a total of 1,506 miles¹ in and around the city). That means an average commercial vehicle driver wastes more than 152 hours¹ per year while sat in traffic. Translate that into an approximate loss of £15,978,240² for businesses in the Hull area, and you have your answer.
