Picture this: you’re driving down the highway trying to get cargo from Point A to Point B. You get an alert from the ELD on your truck — your hours of service are almost up, and you need to stop driving. Where do you go?
For the third episode of Careers on the Move, we spoke to Anthony Petitte, CEO of TruckPark. The company has humble beginnings: Anthony wanted to help his uncle, who owned a parking lot and was looking for a way to reach truck drivers. Today, TruckPark connects 1.7 million truckers with over 220 secure locations and works with both owner-operators and fleet drivers.
When starting his company, Anthony spoke directly with truck drivers to learn their pain points. But he discovered that finding a safe place to park was only one of many challenges facing truck drivers today. Although they move essential goods across the country, truck drivers feel undervalued and underappreciated.
