Chicago, Illinois – October 30, 2019 – TruckPark, a digital truck parking leader and Arlington Heights based security company, Imperial Surveillance Inc. is excited to announce a new strategic partnership. The two companies are working together to develop new technology and R&D for truck parking operators.
Truck parking shortages are a national safety concern. Commercial truck drivers need access to safe, secure, and accessible truck parking. However, finding space to park a truck safely can be a challenge. The result of parking in unsecured locations put drivers at high risk of vandalism and theft. According to the National Cargo Security Council (NCSC) globally, 85% of all major cargo theft involves trucks, particularly when parked at unsecured locations.
Just how serious is security at truck parking facilities? In 2009, a truck driver by the name of Jason Rivenburg was shot and killed after he was forced to park in an unsafe location. Later this was passed by the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) as Jason’s Law. Jason was forced to park at an abandoned gas station to wait to deliver his load because there was no other parking available. Today, there still is a massive shortage of parking along national highways, and even more dire is the lack of rules allowing drivers safe places to park when waiting to deliver a load.
“Enhancing security and developing new technologies that will make the process of finding safe, secure parking more efficiently for drivers is why we created this partnership with Imperial Surveillance” said Anthony Petitte, CEO of TruckPark Inc.
“The transportation industry is a fairly new vertical for us, but we are excited to be working with TruckPark on this initiative and most importantly make a difference for our customers. If we can challenge more operators to get involved and increase security at their facilities, we can ultimately mitigate some of the variables truck drivers face while over the road” said Dan Burress, President at Imperial Surveillance, Inc.
