Founded in 1980, the Belgian Parking Federation has 8 members, who together manage more than 213 car parks in Belgium. The members of the Belgian Parking Federation thus provide their customers with 213,106 parking spaces in 45 cities.
BPF also represents the Belgian parking sector to the EPA (European Parking Association). The members of the BPF are the main players in the Belgian parking sector:
N.V. INDIGO PARK BELGIUM
S.A. EFFIA vBELGIUM
N.V. APCOA PARKING BELGIUM
B.V.B.A. OPTIMAL PARKING CONTROL
S.A. RAUWERS CONTROL
N.V. Q-PARK BELGIUM
With more than 3,900 direct and indirect jobs, the parking sector brings a real benefit to the Belgian socio-economic fabric. As the majority of the staff is allocated to operational functions (around 80%), the member companies of the BPF offer a varied career opportunity both to people with a higher or university education and to less qualified people, or even those who have dropped out of training.
In a sector that is constantly evolving, the members of the BPF apply an open human resources policy and allow their employees to develop their skills through various training courses.
To this end, some BPF members have set up learning or apprentice centers and car park schools that allow employees to learn their trade and to follow developments. The training courses provided there are organised in close cooperation with the National Employment Office (ONEM), Bruxelles-Formation and the Flemish Employment and Training Office (VDAB). This policy makes it possible to put young people in rupture to work or to allow to keep working those who reached the end of their working life and older people who wish to work after the official retirement age.
Focused on the long term, this approach, without distinction of gender, socio-cultural background, level of education, age or disability, also enables BPF members to serve their different types of clients in the best possible way: municipalities and car park owners, as well as people who park off- and on-street.
