Real-time border crossing times for trucks in Europe

IMPARGO is constantly working on keeping up-to-date information on truck route planning and expected truck travel time, which allows our clients to get realistic truck routes and increase their service level with ETA features to save time and money.

Over the past few weeks due to the increasing coronavirus-related lockdown of Europe and new necessary precautions in the EU controlling the spread of Covid-19, transportation service providers are facing operational and health-related challenges never seen before.

The challenges for road transport in Europe

The situation in most European countries changes almost every minute, which in turn causes changes in all aspects of the activity of transport companies and the estimation time of delivery of goods to the final destinations. IMPARGO tries to respond to all kinds of changes as soon as possible (traffic jams, closures and opening of new border crossings between countries) and inform our customers about it.

Decrees issued by various European countries ordering the closure of borders between countries do not include international road transport. However, border controls and general information chaos can cause congestion at border crossing points. In the meantime, we may encounter a case of excessive traffic to the border or a complete lack of passage.

Get real-time border crossing information

IMPARGO introduces a new free feature for easier truck route planning in our interactive map based on the real-time data of the start-up Sixfold GmbH. Using the new function, the dispatcher is able to monitor real-time border crossing times for trucks and all road changes which allow you to react and avoid inadvertent stops in real-time.

Information on real-time border crossing times apply to all types of carriers serving an international market.
