WASHINGTON, D.C. — Truck Parking Europe, the largest free parking app for truckers in Europe, is expanding to the United States with a new crowd-sourced app for truckers looking for a safe place to park. The new app–Truck Parking USA– is scheduled to launch in 2017 and will provide truckers in the U.S. with access to the nearest parking and rest stops, reviews and more.
According to recent reports, as many as 75% of American truckers say finding a safe place to park is one of their biggest challenges on a day to day basis. The ability to find quality parking alternatives with real time updates about availability is critical to driver safety. Already in Europe, the Truck Parking app has helped hundreds of thousands of truckers stay safe while parked around the continent.
“With 3.5 million American truckers on the road today, it should come as no surprise that finding safe parking for them all is strain on state department of transportations,” said Niels de Zwaan, director of Truck Parking USA. “These truckers are the backbone of the American economy and as such deserve a voice and advocate for their safety.”
First launched in 2013, Truck Parking Europe has a database that includes more than 18,000 truck parking spaces from Ireland to Ukraine, with a total of more than 220,000 parking options for European truckers. Supported by the leading logistics software company PTV Group, Truck Parking Europe and USA harnesses state of the art route calculation to ensure truckers are getting the right information, every time.
There is no equivalent app for Canadian parking. Yet.
