Belgian transport companies lose an average of 335 hours per lorry each year as a result of trucks being stuck in traffic jams. This congestion often occurs at well-known points along the road network but also builds up in queues at freight forwarders, receivers or terminals. With an economic value of 50 euros per hour, this represents a total loss of 16,750 euros per lorry each year. It comes as no surprise then that the sector is diligently searching for a solution. A study by the Smart Mobility Expertise Center shows that a communal trailer parking lot would save many lost hours.
Recent data shows that every two days, a child dies in a traffic accident involving a lorry & on average, Flanders has 120 speeding-related deaths on its roads every year.

The vital component for both of these measures is already available: the Flemish Traffic Sign Database.
