Serva Transport Systems GmbH revolutionizes parking. Automated parking systems of the future uses patented robotic technology to park cars making fast, easy, and secure.
It all started in an old boat shed in Bavaria, two young engineers and an architect – Rupert Koch, Cary Bellaflor, and Leopold Meirer - had an idea in 2010 to use a robot to make parking easier. Instead of parking the ever-increasing amount of cars in narrow, winding garages, a robotic type of forklift takes over the task. Under the motto, “We park for you!” serva transport system developed this special parking solution. The system makes parking a faster and more comfortable while using existing space more efficiently with easy installation.
In the Fall of 2012, the innovative development by the young company was proven for the first time in a pilot project. Only one-and-a-half years later, in April 2014, the automated parking system will be become a common feature at Düsseldorf International Airport. Further projects are already being planned such as an interim car storage facility for the automotive industry, a vintage car storage facility, and a facility for towed cars.

Automated Parking System 'RAYTM'
Founded in 2010 by two engineers, Serva has received numerous accolades for its development of “RAY” which can easily be implemented in new and existing parking structures. With this innovative, simple and efficient system, industry, airports, parking operators, car rental companies, and city planners have a novel solution for the transport and parking of vehicles.
“RAY” stores cars up to 60% more economically then a human driver thus can free up substantial parking space. Through its spacious transfer stations, “RAY” increases the convenience of passengers and drivers while basically eliminating damage risk. Assembly of “RAY” and its components is at Gut Sossau in Grabenstätt where the main investor, Meltl, a family owned investment firm, is based.
