Secure parking for trucks

England has just inaugurated the largest ultra-secure European car park for drivers, which can hold up to 650 heavy goods vehicles.

This site is located 20km from the entrance to the Channel Tunnel on the British side. LED lights, cameras, motion detectors secure the area. It also has a restaurant, a gym, rest rooms, washing machines, etc. for the comfort of truck drivers.

The demand for this kind of projects is very important to fight against the shortage of truckers and there was a shortage of 3,700 places in the UK sector. But this is also the case in other countries and Germany, for example, has just released 90 million euros for the same type of projects.
