Bosch Secure Truck Parking and TRAVIS Road Services are combining their booking portals. This way, with around 400 locations and 15,000 parking spaces in 14 countries, the alliance offers the highest number of parking places in Europe.
From the beginning of 2023, users of Bosch Secure Truck Parking and TRAVIS Road Services will be able to access a total of 15,000 parking spaces at well around 400 locations in 14 European countries. This includes countries such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Great Britain, France, and Poland, announced Dr. Jan-Philipp Weers, Head of Bosch Secure Truck Parking, on Thursday.
“In addition to the high safety standards that the majority of the 100 Bosch sites meet, there is good site coverage through approximately 300 parking locations of TRAVIS Road Services,” added TRAVIS Road Services CEO Dennis van Veggel.
The portals provide freight forwarders with parking spaces in different areas, such as at truck stops, trucking marshalling yards, and logistics centres. This approach allows connecting locations and new parking spaces flexibly, which promises further, rapid growth in parking spaces, the companies say.
What essentially changes is the scope of the offer for existing customers is that freight forwarders can view and block-book all the parking spaces they need in real time via the usual platform, and bill paperlessly via efficient collective invoices.
Regardless of the cooperation, Bosch and TRAVIS will still maintain their individual offers on the respective portals.
Bosch Secure Truck Parking advises beyond the platform on holistic solutions for the transport and logistics industry and supports freight forwarders in the structural implementation of security and service solutions.
Depending on the requirements, Bosch complies with European safety certificates such as the certifications of the Transported Asset Protection Association’s (TAPA) or EU Parking Standards developed by the European Commission.
TRAVIS, on the other hand, offers the combined booking of cleaning and repair services. Carriers can continue to book these services at approximately 1,450 partner locations in 17 countries as usual.
They can easily simplify their administration by receiving just one invoice for different bookings or services which includes special VAT rules (e.g. reverse-charge mechanism). The possibility to pay and book road services with company fuel cards is also still available, which TRAVIS offers in cooperation with partners such as Shell, DKV or UTA.
