The EU Study on Safe and Secure Truck Parking areas showed the transport industry that there is a need for more secure truck parkings, a one-stop shop for parking information and the ability to book parkings.
In November 2018 Truck Parking Europe introduced the feature: book & pay. This gives truck drivers and planning managers the possibility to directly book & pay a parking. Over 35 locations offer the possibility to book a parking via the platform and already 6 have chosen to handle their payment completely digitally and cashless via the Truck Parking Platform.
“Both drivers and parking operators have responded with enthusiasm on our Book & Pay feature. This helps the industry to further improve a safe work environment for truck drivers and securing cargo.” said Niels de Zwaan, CEO Truck Parking Europe.
