Technology company TruckPark Inc. announced a strategic partnership with logistics and transportation industry software developer UTECH to provide truck drivers with easy access to find safe, secure parking.

The TruckPark app will now be accessible to more than 10,000 drivers throughout the United States via UTECH’s software.

UTECH’s GPSTab software is on tablets that drivers use daily on their routes. GPSTab keeps track of commercial drivers’ hours of service using data from federally mandated electronic logging devices and automatic onboard recording devices.

GPSTab’s other features include dash cameras, truck diagnostics, equipment trackers and a dispatch board. The two companies said they were working together on research and development and updates to their technologies. — Transport Topics
