Balancing of Truck Parking Demand by a Centralized Incentives/Pricing System
The main objective of this project is to develop a centralized truck parking system that will balance parking utilization in time and space by using full information about supply and demand. Surveys find that most drivers use unauthorized parking locations at least once a week and studies report that many drivers often spend more than 30 minutes looking for parking, or park one hour earlier than required in order to guarantee parking, both of which reduce productivity. Nevertheless, less than 50% of truck stops reported working overcapacity, and the reported difficulties with parking usually refer to the period between 7PM and 5AM. Despite being recognized as one of the trucking industry's top issues, truck parking is rarely considered by studies on truck routing and scheduling. This research develops a central parking coordinator system capable of directing the multiple planners of the trucking industry into choosing itineraries that will not overburden parking facilities.
