Love’s has started numbering truck parking spots. Here’s why.


If you’ve been wondering why Love’s Travel Stops is adding numbers to their truck parking spaces at some locations, you’re not alone.

Many members of the trucking community have recently shared concern that Love’s might be moving to paid parking because they’ve noticed that the truck stop giant is now numbering their truck parking spaces at some locations.

CDLLife reached out to Love’s to ask why the spaces are being numbered.

Here’s what the company had to say:

The truck parking spaces at new locations are now numbered so we can better serve customers. One way they’re currently being used is for safety reasons. If there’s an issue with a driver, we can easily direct emergency services to the truck. Additionally, it helps map out the truck parking area for Love’s team members as they go about their daily duties.”

Some truckers say that they are using the new numbered spots in order to help food delivery drivers find them more easily.

“I have asked at Loves. They said it’s for deliveries like Doordash and Walmart. You can give them a spot number so they can find your truck easier. Otherwise they will get lost with the 5 blue Freightliners next to each other,” one person said.

Other truckers say that the numbered spots are useful for shop workers who are trying to locate a truck in a Love’s lot.

“…they are doing it for safety purposes and for shop purposes. That way if there is an emergency, issue, or appointment with the shop they can identify you based on the numbered parking spot you’re in. Example: you need a tire changed. They tell you to park in spot # whatever. Another example: this driver in spot # whatever may be having a medical emergency,” another person wrote.
