Truck Parking Conference
25-26 October 2010
The European Commission and the Belgian Presidency host a conference in Brussels (25 and 26 October 2010) on improving European truck parking areas. Some 200 experts from the transport and logistics industry, police organisations and government officials will attend to discuss the problems created by attacks on vehicles with high-value cargo and by the insufficient number of rest facilities for drivers. They will also look at initiatives at national and European level that could help to combat crime and attacks on cargo and to develop more safe and secure truck parking areas.
This will include the results of a project (LABEL ) co-funded by the European Union which has developed a labelling scheme on the quality and security of rest areas.
