ESPORG, together with its public and private partners, from the European Commission, International Transport Forum, ACEA, IRU, CLECAT, ECG, ESC, UETR, TVM, Dekra and Truckerslife, launches the 2023 edition of its Excellence in Truck Parking Award.
Today, ESPORG, the European Secure Truck Parking Organisation, with its public and private partners, from the European Commission, IRU, ITF, ACEA, CLECAT, ECG, ESC, UETR, TVM, Dekra and Truckerslife, launched the 2023 edition of its Excellence in Truck Parking Award, with the objective to promote safety, security, quality, connectivity and care in providing services to professional truck drivers when using safe and secure truck parking areas.
The aim of the European Truck Parking Award is to promote excellence and to help spread good practices in view of improving safety, security and quality of services offered by truck parking operators to professional truck drivers, and, by doing so, to enhance the attractiveness and appeal of the driver profession to an increasingly diverse and wider public, including young people and women.
Michael Nielsen, President of ESPORG, said: “We are proud to launch this new edition of the Award, which aims at showcasing and promoting the best among our truck parking operators, and by the same token, contribute to resolutely improving the working conditions of professional lorry drivers across Europe. The novelty this year is that our international jury will decide on two winners – one for small and one for large truck parking areas, thus democratising the process and opening the possibility for everyone to win.”
“UETR fully supports this Award, which is key to promote and reward those best practices in Europe contributing to a fair and quality transport. This is of paramount importance, now more than ever at these challenging times for our sector” said UETR Secretary General Marco Digioia.
