KWL Fleet prepares for the ‘new-normal’

The return to some sort of normality will undoubtedly be a steady process, but we are all feeling optimistic that better times are hopefully ahead of us!

With Government restrictions gradually beginning to ease, we’re looking forward to the small things, from a picnic in the park, to a kick-about with friends.

Among other changes, 29 March marks the return of organised outdoor sport and all outdoor activities for children – perfect as the Spring weather kicks in. In preparation for the return of grassroots football specifically, Hull City Council will need to re-mark the lines on the pitches across Hull, ready for local young people to use.

KWL Fleet will be responsible for the maintenance and procurement of the authority’s fleet, which transports machinery and equipment on behalf of the Council. The line-marker trikes, used on pitches – will move around the city in one of Fleet’s newly acquired electric vans.

The Government announced last November that there will be a ban on the sale of all petrol and diesel cars from 2030, as part of the Prime Minister’s ‘Green Plan’. In a bid to reduce vehicle emissions and reduce damage to the environment, electric vehicles will increase in number on our roads. Consequently, at KWL Fleet, we have expanded our vehicle range to account for this increasing demand.

One of our core values at KWL is caring about the environment – in fact, we recently achieved the Green Level Award through the Investors in the Environment scheme for our efforts. As a large local employer, we feel it is especially important to take action and implement changes that will have a positive lasting effect in our area.

As Team Fleet helps Hull City Council to prepare for the new-normal, when children are set free on football pitches again and the local community can start to make use of outdoor spaces, we’re proud to be able to play our part. Hopefully we can all look forward to happier days in the sunshine.
