A Message From Our Chairman
At Zone Parking Solutions, we bring proven methods of international parking management to the Middle East. Our modern parking solutions are designed to meet the needs of our customers ranging from bringing control to a small private car park to transforming the parking behavior of an entire city and significantly enhancing its image in the process.
With parking space often in short supply, we understand how important it is for the space available to be optimized and efficiently run. We also know that customers are looking for experienced parking companies that offers high quality service and professionalism but at a cost effective price. Zone offers this combination of benefits to our customers through all stages of the life cycle from planning and design through to solution implementation and subsequent car park operation.
As the culture of paid parking grows in the Middle East, so do we. Although not yet fully accepted in the region, widespread paid parking is inevitable. In fact, we regularly receive positive feedback from the public thanking us for sorting out parking problems in their area. They regard the charges as a small price to pay for the benefit gained. It’s therefore an exciting time to be part of this industry. At Zone, we have the world’s most advanced technological resources available to us and that is why we can offer some of the most modern (advanced) parking solutions, both On/Off street in the market today.
Zone Parking Solutions strives to be the most efficient, responsible and effective in the industry. With a great deal of dedication and passion, we will continue offering our valuable services throughout the Middle East and beyond for many years to come.
