New app combats truck parking area shortage

Jan 23, 2014
PTV Group, the transport software specialist, has launched a free web-based search application to help truck drivers find suitable parking places.

The new Truck Parking Europe app provides a list of more than 10,000 parking options along the main roads in Europe.

The German transport software specialist has collected and edited the basic data which can now be complemented and refined by the truck driver community. In contrast to some navigation systems, which also show parking spaces, this application was specifically designed to support commercial vehicle traffic and therefore shows truck parking locations only.

The Truck Parking Europe app is available for iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded free of charge from the user’s app store. Drivers can then view the search function on the digital map to locate a suitable parking area for their vehicle and plot a route. Those wishing to post a comment or add information can register using their Facebook, GooglePlus, or Twitter account.

In addition to the official parking areas, Truck Parking Europe provides information on commercial vehicle parking spaces located away from main roads.  The app allows drivers to see at a glance what facilities are available and the level of security, etc.

With its pictorial design the app is intuitive to use and is available in eight languages, English, German, French, Dutch, Polish, Czech, Italian and Spanish.
