On June 19th, URSA MAJOR neo and URSA Czech Republic held a workshop to elaborate on the topic of Intelligent Truck Parking.
41 participants, whom among were representatives and experts of various European National Road Authorities as well as logistics and truck companies, met in Prague and participated in a total of 11 presentations, ranging from individual implementations to ideas on how to further improve truck parking across Europe. Each presentation was followed by a discussion round, an interesting exchange of thoughts and opinions, highlighting very different aspects of the same topic, thus showing the benefit of gathering experts not only from the side which deploys implementations, but also experts from the end users’ side. The insight gained from this open discussion with representatives of the end users proved very advantageous to the National Road Authorities, with the added benefit of the end users feeling involved and having the opportunity to directly present their needs and recommendations.
In summary, this first joint workshop between these two actions can be regarded a success and a further step along the way to improve ITP along the European corridors.
