Trucking Parking Shortage Solution

Posted by Kirra Stemmler | April 8, 2016 | blog

Four workshops are set to be held later in the year by the Federal Highway Administration. The workshops were set up to address the country’s truck parking shortage, as announced last week at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky.

The workshop dates and locations are spread out to maximize accessibility.

The dates and locations are as follows:

  • June 8Th in Salt Lake City, Utah at the Utah Trucking Association headquarters
  • August 25th in Dallas, Texas at the Great American Truck Show
  • October 5th in Grain Valley, Missouri at the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association headquarters


Details for the fourth workshop have not yet been announced. However, the workshop is expected to be scheduled in either July or September.

Access to these workshops will be limited, as to allow for an even mix of trucking industry representatives. The workshops will essentially be invitation only. According to Thomas Phelan, managing director of the consulting firm of Vanesse Hangen Brustlin, Inc., workshop attendees will be sought out through partnerships with organizations.

Phelan says, “We’re going to be kind of controlling the attendance at this, the information coming out of it is going to be more important than the participation at the event.”
