TRELP Truck Parking App could be solution to end truck parking crisis
UNDERDOG WITH AN AMBITIOUS VISION
CALLING FORTH ALL TRUCKERS TO HELP LOCATE PARKING SPOTS
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations prohibit interstate truck drivers from driving more than 11 hours per day. Drivers must locate a place to park upon reaching the maximum hours. Unfortunately, however, it’s quite challenging at times to find parking.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 745 reported fatal injuries in 2015 among truck drivers. Some of which are caused by the inability to park at a safe location. The American Trucking Association estimated that there are 3.5 million truckers on the US highways. Yet astonishingly there is parking for only about 300,000.
Truck parking shortages are a national safety concern.
Truck Parking Coalition proceeds to focus on parking crisis
FREE TRELP APP PLANS ON HAVING 3,000,000 PARKING SPOTS ON ITS PLATFORM BY 2019 SO EVERY TRUCKER HAS A SAFE PLACE TO SLEEP.
Current truck parking apps, including, TruckerPath, help truckers find existing truck stops and rest areas. It also alerts drivers whether a parking facility is full.
TRELP does this and more.
With such overwhelming parking shortages, truckers need more and better solutions.
Trelp allows users to share non-traditional parking locations. For example, a truck parking facility may be completely full, but there may be a shopping center nearby that allows overnight parking.
Trelp Truck Parking App allows Truckers to be driving force to end Truck Parking Shortage Crisis
Trelp allows users to create new parking spots anywhere, be it by a truck stop, at a shipper or receiver, or just along the side of the road. No other app allows users to do this.
LAST MILE DIRECTIONS TO SHIPPERS/RECEIVERS
Knowing the physical address to a shipper/receiver is simply not enough. Drivers must go to the loading/unloading area, which is often difficult to find.
Trelp allows users to share last mile directions. Having all of this information will significantly decrease wasteful driving. Consequently, there will also be less air pollution.
Moreover, drivers can comment on the shipper/receiver, e.g., a driver must pay a lumper fee in cash in order to get an executed Bill of Lading; shipper will not allow early arrival; hours of operation; and overnight parking availability.
In addition, Trelp is comparable to WAZE for truck drivers in that it allows users to alert each other as to where law enforcement has been sighted. Traffic citations can not only be costly for commercial drivers, they can affect a driver’s livelihood.
- Huge data base of truck parking- truck stops and rest areas
With driver input TRELP can also do the following:
- Additional allowed parking in shopping centers
- Additional allowed parking in industrial centers
- Additional allowed parking at shippers & receivers
- Identify exact locations for loading/unloading areas for shippers & receivers
- Do drivers need a lumper? Drivers can share info
- Are drivers allowed early delivery? Drivers can share info
In sum, Trelp is a technology platform that is designed for drivers to help each other.
