Financial Services (VWFS) is acquiring a 75% stake in Utrecht-based Truck Parking Europe with the aim of improving safety for truck drivers in the Netherlands.
Truck Parking Europe - a PTV company - offers a range of services for truck drivers, planners, dispatchers and parking operators via a free app for Android, iOS and the web. These services allow users to filter and find truck platooning locations, connect with other truck drivers, the possibility to claim and secure parking locations and to book and pay for parking locations online.
Niels de Zwaan, managing director of PTV Truckparking, says the partnership will allow the company to further link its truck parking infrastructure to planning, logistics and communication systems.
"In this way, we contribute to making the drivers’ working environment safer while reducing traffic searching for parking spaces. Moreover, we help reduce cargo theft and improve planning efficiency for logistics planners and dispatchers," Zwaan adds.
