Annual losses due to cargo theft in Europe amount to 6-7 billion euros. According to the international road transport unit IRU, 75% of such incidents occur in unguarded parking lots. IRU has been working for the past year with the European Commission on a study to investigate the condition of parking infrastructure and to define common standards for safe parking areas for trucks in the European Union. 

Safe parking lots

Incidents usually occur at night, in car parks, or dedicated parking areas near motorways. Unfortunately, there are not enough secure parking areas in Europe, s. For your convenience, we have compiled a list of protected car parks where drivers can rest peacefully without worrying about loss of cargo or health.
