Freight forwarders can book secure parking for their drivers throughout Europe

Karlsruhe/Utrecht, 10.06.2017. Truck Parking Europe is Europe's largest free platform for truck parking facilities. With over 550,000 downloads, over 26,000 parking areas and more than 600,000 parking spaces throughout Europe, the app is the number one choice to find the best truck parking space along a route. Now the platform is expanded by a reservation platform, which enables carriers and truckers to book safe parking facilities for their trucks in advance.

The first pan-European reservation platform helps transport companies and truck drivers find and reserve secure parking spaces in time, both on the web and via app. This allows logistics companies to make life easier and more convenient for their drivers and to prevent risks. If a haulier has booked a parking space for a driver, he can inform him about this by sending a confirmation.

Protected truck parking facilities can be booked through their own reservation platforms. Truck Parking Europe’s reservation platform can therefore be connected to any parking reservation system in Europe. In this case, Truck Parking Europe simply sends the reservation request to the car park operator. "By integrating a unique reservation feature in the app, professional drivers know exactly where a secure parking space is waiting for them on their route. We are the first with a European wide reservation platform, which is yet another step in our continuous development to support our driver community towards increased road safety", says PTV Truckparking director Niels de Zwaan.

To reach even more carriers and truck drivers, the platform is also integrated into the PTV Map & Guide transport route planning software. This means that all users of PTV’s planning software can also reserve secure parking spaces for their drivers and routes throughout Europe.
