Our highways allow commercial vehicles to move, but what infrastructure is in place when they need to stop, and their drivers need to safely rest? The need for ample and safe parking for large semi-trucks could generate the next great business idea. But, as a business problem, the issue is complex: parking requires real estate, investment, and a will to work through red tape. This RS episode sits down with Evan Shelley, an entrepreneur with a real estate background and some very good ideas on how to approach this vexing issue.  The co-founder and CEO of TruckParkingClub.com thinks that tapping into information technology and available land could create a new parking landscape. Will it? Budding entrepreneurs, truck stop owners, fleet administrators, and truck drivers will all find Shelley's words worth stopping for. Tune in.
