More Parking Place Operators sign up to participate in TAPA’s secure parking programme with numbers set to double in Q1 2019

The number of truck parks participating in TAPA EMEA’s new secure parking programme has risen to 28, and more Parking Place Operators (PPO) are in the process of applying to join the scheme.

TAPA EMEA members can download the list of sites currently available by logging onto the Association’s website to identify locations in Austria, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Romania, Slovakia, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Operators of more sites in the UK, South Africa, Spain and Poland are in discussion with TAPA’s Secure Parking team to find out more about the PSR programme and the goal is to double the current number of sites by the end of Q1 2019.

In support of the PSR Security Standard, TAPA EMEA has produced a new explainer video to show members how to plan resilient transport routes by providing visibility of recorded cargo crime incidents on each planned route sector, to identify the level of risk, alongside the locations of secure parking sites participating in the TAPA scheme.

In Brussels in December, TAPA EMEA also concluded a positive meeting with representatives of the EU-funded ‘Study on Safe & Secure Parking Places for Trucks’ for further discussions aimed at improving the level of secure parking across the continent. At the invitation of the European Commission, TAPA has since completed an application to join its Expert Group for secure parking.
