The French Truck Etape Béziers parking facility was voted European Truck Parking of the Year 2022 by ESPORG’s international jury, composed of representatives of leading road transport stakeholders and governmental and non-governmental institutions and bodies.

In particular, the jury commended the completeness and excellence of the winner’s service offer to drivers and attention to the smallest details, including environment, health, recreation, affordability, and indeed individual care to every single driver.

Antoine Lecea, PDG of the FAL Group, said: “Located next to the main traffic arteries North/South of Europe (highway A9) for heavy trucks, 150 km from the Spanish border (La Junquera) with more than 15 000 trucks crossing the area daily, we bring to our truck drivers friends the maximum of security for them and for their trucks. We try to personalize the greeting of our drivers by offering them the best facilities for catering, hygiene and leisure.
All our teams and myself are delighted to receive this distinction and we thank the jury for choosing us as the laureate of the EUROPEAN PARKING OF THE YEAR 2022 award.
This award will encourage us even more to pursue the development of services in our parking.”

Kristian Schmidt, Director for Land Transport at the European Commission said: “The quality of this truck parking is truly impressive! Such well-equipped truck-parking infrastructure should become the norm in Europe and not an exception. Truck drivers in Europe deserve safe and comfortable rest facilities when transporting goods to our homes, shops and businesses. Such facilities will certainly make trucking jobs more attractive, especially for young people and for women. The EU will continue supporting the development of safe and secure truck parking areas. They are crucial not only for eliminating criminality against drivers and cargo but also to ensure drivers are well-rested, healthy, connected and satisfied with their working conditions.”
