Transport Cafe is the essential friend for truck drivers, providing information on truck stops, lorry parks and transport cafes. We offer the latest industry news, product reviews, advice and trucking-related features, serving HGV drivers, multi-drop, Public Service Vehicle drivers (PSV/PCV), professional drivers (truckers) and commercial travellers. Transport cafe is a great free to access resource that lists day and overnight truck stops, which can be transport cafes or lorry parks for HGVs, rigid (with trailers) or articulated vehicles that need ample parking space. The site covers the UK and Ireland.
transportcafe.co.uk was founded and established in 1996 by a businessman named John who had previously been a HGV driver - starting his driving career in the 50s. In 2005 the site was passed to his son, also named John, who carried on updating the site to help service the Knights of the Road who work hard every day.
In 2013, the site was taken over by Kelsey Publishing as part of their trucking portfolio including Trucking Magazine and Truckstop News. It is a dedication to the transport industry, especially those at the sharp end like HGV drivers, the goods transport manager and not forgetting the WVM. The ethos stays the same - to help those professional drivers on the road who have an affinity with the unpretentious nature of these establishments that offer good food and value to drivers over long hours.
