PRESS RELEASE | TRAVIS Road Services is expanding its services to include truck parking. In addition to truck washing, tank cleaning and repair work, hauliers can now also find, book and pay for suitable parking spaces via the TRAVIS booking platform. With immediate effect, this can be done at some fifty locations in Europe, and this number is increasing every day. TRAVIS is launching the Truck Parking service as a solution to the social problem of safe truck parking and the lack of quality truck parking.
Increasing international road transport combined with the new regulations on driving and rest times are causing overcrowded parking spaces. The demand for quality truck parking along European roads far exceeds the supply and, to make matters worse, the number of cargo thefts is increasing substantially. Dennis van Veggel, CEO of TRAVIS Road Services: “In discussions with our customers and partners, looking for appropriate solutions, we noticed that many of them were open to what is called 'Depot Parking'. This is the provision of parking spaces on private ground. We connect these car parks with the aim of creating as many safe parking spaces as possible.” Through the TRAVIS booking platform, hauliers can easily find, book and pay for truck parking. Besides Depot Parking locations, existing private and public secured car parks are also available through the TRAVIS road services network.
For truck parking providers:
Within Europe there are various providers of truck parking services. How does TRAVIS distinguish itself? Besides the fact that TRAVIS offers multiple road services and is ideal to get a grip on these types of expenses, TRAVIS is unique in offering 'bookable' truck parks combined with extensive possibilities for (and simplicity of) payment. In addition to acceptance via TRAVIS, hauliers have the option to link their fuel card(s) to the TRAVIS account so that the transaction for the service is charged via the fuel card. Currently this is already possible with the Shell Card or Hoyer Card and other card providers will follow in the near future. Truck washing and tank cleaning, it is even possible to pay with physical fuel cards at one of the service locations within the TRAVIS Road Services network.
TRAVIS Road Services provides hauliers with an extensive European network of road services. By using the TRAVIS booking platform, hauliers can find, book and pay for services such as truck washing, tank cleaning, truck parking and repair. The network is further expanded with qualified partners and services every day. TRAVIS provides insight and control and enables hauliers to manage their road services: maximum convenience and control assured.
