The second successful regional conference of the EU-funded “Study on Safe and Secure Parking Places for Trucks” was held on 19 June 2018 in Arad, Romania. The conference was hosted by the town hall of Arad.
This conference is embedded in a series of conferences, which will continue in Hannover (Germany) on 25 September, the Netherlands and Brussels (Belgium) on 6 November.
This regional conference emphasized four main topics:
- Presentation of a new security standard for safe and secure truck parking areas in Europe
