CHICAGO, May 14, 2019: TruckPark today announced its technology partnership with Inspire11, a strategic, digital and analytics consulting firm. TruckPark is a Chicago-based company committed to improving the truck driving experience using technology to overcome the problem of finding safe and secure parking.
Inspire11 developed the TruckPark app that became available for free last week on both the Apple and Android app stores, and will also provide technology support for TruckPark.
“Inspire11 is one of the most innovative technology-support companies in the country helping start-ups succeed in disrupting a number of industries,” said Joshua Walls, Chief Operating Officer and co-founder of TruckPark. “We are excited to be supported by Inspire11 and for their confidence in the solution we have developed for truck drivers.”
Inspire11 Chief Executive Officer Alban Mehmeti says, “Investing in TruckPark fits perfectly within Inspire11’s strategy for support promising start-ups that have developed a technology solution to a widespread problem. We are going to help TruckPark succeed.”
Finding an available parking spot has become increasingly difficult for commercial truck drivers. There are about 3.5 million professional truck drivers in the U.S., according to the American Trucking Association, but fewer than 400,000 available parking spots. Safety regulations now require drivers to use electronic logging devices (ELDs) and limit their driving to 11 hours per day.
“Finding and securing parking is a major problem for truckers, who all too often waste valuable time when they arrive at a lot that is full and have to start over again in their search,” says TruckPark Chief Executive Officer and co-founder Anthony Petitte. “Truck drivers need the technology solution we are providing to help them quickly and easily find parking.”
TruckPark’s app not only will be a major time-saver for truckers, but will also help enhance highway safety, as frustrated drivers occasionally park on the side of the highway when they can’t find parking because lots are full, Petitte says. “Parking facility owners will also benefit greatly as our app helps them increase parking utilization rates, adding directly to their top line.”
TruckPark Inc. is a values-based company driven by the mission “to empower truck drivers while providing a safe and unmatched experience.” We will revolutionize the trucking industry by providing drivers with an easy and reliable app to find safe, secure parking, and an opportunity for private lot owners to maximize their revenues. www.truckpark.com
