Germany is missing 11000 lorry parking sites along motorways
Too long distances between service areas, too few parking spaces for LGVs – this is the daily reality for drivers hauling goods in Germany.
According to a study commissioned by the German Ministry of Transport, over 70,000 LGV drivers look for free parking spaces along German motorways.
Every lorry driver that has to pass through Germany knows how difficult it is to find a parking space after 5 p.m. Forecasts indicate that the number of trucks on German roads will double by 2025, which will only make the situation worse.
Does the German government have a plan how to tackle this problem?
