The first mobile guide of UK truck stops for Apple’s iPhone is now available.
Using the mapping and GPS features of the iPhone, Truckstop UK for iOS helps freight transport operators and drivers plan their journeys, rest and park safely.
All the truck stops included provide facilities specifically for truck drivers and are recognised as rest areas for heavy goods vehicles. More will be included as their details become available and truck stop owners can add details of their own facilities online. (www.trafficmediauk.com/truckstops/addnew/)
Truckstop UK for iOS allows the truck driver to search for truck stops by name, location or even distance from their current location and display the results on the iPhone’s integrated map. Selecting a truck stop displays opening times, parking capacity and one touch dialling to call the chosen location for advanced bookings or just to check availability of space or services. Details on services such as accommodation, lorry wash facilities, CCTV and security fences and more are also available to allow the driver to determine that the services required are available before they arrive, saving time and fuel.
Truckstop UK for iOS is part of the Traffic Media UK series of solutions and contains details on over 100 recognised truck stops with over 8,500 parking spaces and growing.
