Portsmouth: Fleet Management by Webfleet
Your business is unique. Just like your fleet of vehicles. Therefore, you need a flexible fleet management platform: a solution in terms of fleet optimisation, vehicle tracking, workforce management, green & safe driving, business integration and connected car services that suit your activities, vehicles, size, budget and location.
Portsmouth – a unique city with a character of its own
Situated on the south coast of England, Portsmouth is a naval city with a proud history stretching back centuries. “Her Majesty’s Naval Base Portsmouth” has been home to famous ships like Nelson’s Victory and Henry VIII’s Mary Rose. Today, both make very popular tourist attractions drawing in thousands of people every year. A more contemporary attraction is the spectacular Emirates Spinnaker Tower soaring 170 metres above Gunwharf Quays. But, home to IBM’s European HQ and the University of Portsmouth, there’s more to Portsmouth than tourism alone.
The challenges your drivers & vehicles face in Portsmouth
Covering an area of 40 square kilometres mainly on Portsea Island, Portsmouth is the UK’s only island city. With over 5,000 people per square kilometre, it’s also one of Europe’s most densely populated cities (Wikipedia). Apart from making it unique and fascinating to visit, its location also creates transportation issues. It is served by the M27 and M275 motorways as well as the busy A3 trunk road. Maritime transport is also, of course, a huge part of the city’s infrastructure. Portsmouth International Port is a commercial cruise ship and ferry port serving many international destinations.
Why is a fleet management solution particularly useful in a congested city like Portsmouth? With its compact footprint and island location, Portsmouth’s transport network faces its own set of challenges. Due to heavy traffic during the day and specifically in peak hours, each vehicle spends about 25%¹ more on the road (a total of 2,091 miles¹ in and around the city). That means an average commercial vehicle driver wastes more than 102 hours¹ per year while sat in traffic. Translate that into an approximate loss of £12,484,800² for businesses in the Portsmouth area, and you have your answer.
