Three of the top five trucking industry concerns relate to drivers’ ability to easily and quickly find safe parking, according to an annual survey conducted by the American Transportation Research Institute. ATRI’s Top Industry Issues Survey identified the electronic logging device mandate, limits on hours of service and available truck parking as key issues reducing the time truckers can spend on the road, reducing the freight network’s efficiency and productivity. Fortunately, the MAASTO Truck Parking Information Management System (TPIMS) coming on line in 2019 will reduce the time it takes to find parking, thus safely maximizing the value of drivers’ closely monitored available hours of service. TPIMS will provide drivers real-time parking availability through electronic message signs, smart phone applications and websites, reducing the time they spend out of their hours of service searching for parking.
