Transportation Research Related to COVID-19. Guide on Truck Rest and Service Areas for Critical Supply Chain Delivery

Circumstances during the COVID-19 pandemic have indicated a necessity to identify the essential requirements of truck drivers and facilities to ensure health, safety, and security in the movement of goods in normal times and during times of emergency. Research is needed to understand how truck parking facilities function as critical infrastructure and contribute to the resiliency of the freight transportation system with the practical application of ensuring continuance of operations planning for truck parking facilities. The objective of this research is to develop a guide for effective practices and implementation strategies to integrate resilience and emergency response planning and operations related to truck rest and service areas for supply chain delivery.
