OTRA Founders build a ground-up safe and secure truck parking in Kiskunfélegyháza, Hungary: A Unique Vision Realized
For years, Isabel Corne and Sven Bols, the founders of OTRA, have diligently addressed a pressing concern: over 100,000 parking spaces in Europe go missing every day, leaving truck drivers grappling daily with the challenge of securing safe spots when taking a break. Since 2020, they have embarked on the mission of creating the OTRA Smart truck parking network. This innovative platform allows carriers and drivers to effortlessly access and pre-book truck parking spaces in verified safe and secure locations strategically positioned along Europe's main driving corridors. Now, they've elevated their commitment by constructing their very own truck parking facility in Hungary.

The unveiling of the Truck Parking Area in Kiskunfélegyháza, Hungary, stands as a remarkable achievement for OTRA. Unlike integrations of existing parkings to the OTRA truck parking network or renovations of existing facilities, this endeavour was an ambitious project built from the ground up. It transformed barren land into a fully operational, gold-level security truck parking space that is now accessible and bookable.

By overseeing this visionary project from inception to realisation, Isabel Corne and Sven Bols have applied their experience and insights to every aspect of parking management. From the initial design and construction phases to the implementation of stringent security measures and optimisation of operational efficiency, their dedication has been unwavering.

Nonetheless, thanks to the steadfast dedication and resilience of their team, this parking is now operational and accessible to the trucking community.
