Nottingham – at the centre of everything
Situated in the UK’s East Midlands about 130 miles north of London, Nottingham will always be associated with the Robin Hood story but it is also a thriving business, tourist and cultural centre in the country’s heartland. It is home to two universities – the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University – as well as the BioCity Nottingham bioscience park. With a historic connection to the lace and bicycle industries, today it is the base for many well-known companies including Boots the Chemist. A huge centre for sports, it is also a popular tourist destination.
The challenges your drivers & vehicles face in Nottingham
With all its business, sports and cultural activities going on, Nottingham is a busy place. It has the largest urban area in the East Midlands and the second largest in the Midlands as a whole – covering districts such a Beeston and Breaston, Likeston, Giltbrook, Hucknall and Tollerton. Public transport is actually very good. It has the largest publically owned bus network in England and the Nottingham Express Transit tram system is one of the best in the country. Being centrally located in the country, it also has a lot of major road links. The A46, A52, A60 and A610 give good access to surrounding areas and the M1 provides the fastest route to cities both north and south. Last but not least, East Midlands Airport is 15 miles south west of the city centre.
Why is a fleet management solution particularly useful in a congested city like Nottingham? Given its urban spread and the general busy-ness of this thriving city, getting around can pose problems for fleet managers. The fluctuating student population and seasonal flow of tourists also make planning more tricky. Due to heavy traffic during the day and specifically in peak hours, each vehicle spends about 27%¹ more on the road (a total of 2,166 miles¹ in and around the city). That means an average commercial vehicle driver wastes more than 120 hours¹ per year while sat in traffic. Translate that into an approximate loss of £9,158,400² for businesses in the Nottingham area, and you have your answer.
