Truck Parking Supply and Demand – In order for District 4 to support ongoing expansion in the truck parking infrastructure in South Florida, it must have a comprehensive understanding of the existing facilities, the unmet need/demand, how the industry functions and shares information, and the regulations and policies in place impacting truck parking facilities. This analysis represents the first phase of District 4’s efforts to examine truck parking focusing on calculating the unmet parking demand. This includes an inventory of available trucking parking supply, the calculation of demand, and recommendations on next steps.
