NATSO and the NATSO Foundation provide the most relevant, trusted and up-to-date news and trends affecting the truckstop and travel plaza industry.
NATSO President and CEO Lisa Mullings joined representatives of the American Trucking Associations and the American Transportation Research Institute and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance in urging truck parking providers to participate in a new highway safety initiative aimed at helping commercial truck drivers find available truck parking. Speaking at a press conference held May 18 on Capitol Hill during NATSO’s annual call on Washington, Mullings announced that beginning in late summer, truck drivers who need to stop and rest will be able to use a new, free mobile phone app called Park My Truck to locate available truck parking.
