Assessing the Benefits of Intelligent Truck Parking
2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
The aim of this paper is to identify and provide a discussion about aspects related to benefits of Intelligent Truck Parking (ITP) for Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) and their effects on different stakeholders. Most existing work has narrowly focused on benefits for private cars and does not include the user perspective. In this paper, a review of previous work helps identify benefit areas and stakeholder groups relevant for HGV transport. These benefit areas are then theoretically assessed and compared for different stakeholders. Additionally, interview results of Swedish drivers’ and companies’ perceptions of the ITP service are presented. Comparing results of the interviews with the theoretical assessment indicates that the end users may not perceive ITP as highly beneficial although they theoretically benefit the most. Companies, particularly national haulage companies, expressed a low willingness to pay for the service. The general conclusion is that the ITP service has a better chance of success as part of a package of services rather than as a stand-alone service.
