Haulier Payment Solution Expands to Germany
SNAP Account, a smart payment solution used by almost 4,000 haulage fleets in the UK and France for parking and washes, is launching in Germany.
Registered users simply turn up on site, provide their license plate details, and their payment is invoiced to the driver’s employer directly. No cash is required, and drivers can also use a dedicated App to locate parking locations to help plan their journeys.
Owners of Truck Parks and vehicle washing facilities also benefit from being part of the SNAP network. It enables them to fully utilise their facility, ensuring additional revenues that might otherwise have been wasted and providing a solution to the significant Europe-wide haulage parking shortage.
Mark Garner, Managing Director, SNAP, says Germany is a key market: “In addition to sourcing much-needed parking spaces, we know that we are making the lives of drivers easier by removing the need to carry cash or track receipts,” he says. “Further, registered track parks and logistics firms will never need to chase payment for parking or washes, with payment automated through our easy-to-use platform.”
SNAP recently acquired German-based KXF (Kiosk-Future), a leading payment kiosk provider specialising in Truck Parking payment solutions. SNAP has also employed sales and site liaison staff based in Germany to support the high levels of activity planned.
Currently operating in 216 locations across Europe, SNAP’s services are used by over 95,000 drivers. In the last year, SNAP helped to open an additional 220,000 secure parking spaces through its Depot Parking System.
UK clients include Royal Mail, DSV, Bartrums, RD Williams, Pollocks, Kersey Freight and Premier Logistics, and SNAP also works with the busiest road hub in Europe, the Delta Park A1/E17 Truck Parking area in Northern France.
