The roots of LABEL lie in the parallel between growth of road freight transport in the Trans European Road Network and the increase of criminal activities perpetrated in truck parking areas across Europe.
The European Parliament decided to tackle the security issue on Truck Parking Areas (TPAs) and allocated a budget to launch a pilot-project named SETPOS to set the basis toward better secured TPAs.
LABEL is financed by the European Commission - Directorate General for Energy and Transport - as the follow-up of the SETPOS project.
LABEL is a 24-month project, which involves 11 partners around 2 main objectives
- introduce a European standard certification scheme
- certify a large number of Truck Parking Areas in at least 10 EU member States.
