How to submit ratings

Search for the (un)loading site you want to rate. In case you are registered for more than one company in the APP, please check the correct company you are rating for before submitting the rating. This can be done in the pop-up. 

Find you location: 
A) Use the search bar. There you can also filter for example you are looking for a BASF location in Belgium. Just enter: BASF BE and all locations in Belgium will be filtered.

B) Zoom and scroll in the map.

C) Click on the GPS symbol to see your current location and all sites around you.

Click on the correct location and use the option “rate“. 

Now you can submit your experience based on five categories: 
1. Safety: How is the (un)loading site handling your and everybody´s safety. Rate with stars (1 worst, 5 best).
2. Waiting time: In comparison to other sites, how long did you wait? Rate with stars (1 long, 5 short).
3. Truck driver treatment: How were you treated by the location´s staff? Rate with stars (1 bad, 5 great).
4. Driver facilities: How is the quality of facilities offered to you by the site? Are there even facilities? Rate with stars (1 there are none, 5 great facilities).
5. Total residence time spent: How long did you stay from registering at the site until leaving the site? Rate in three time-categories. 
Moreover, we would like to understand the activity you are rating for with asking you about the (un)loaded product type.
When you are done, you can submit the rating!

6. If you want, you can furthermore leave a text comment.

You can rate a certain location only once per day.

PS: For helping you on-boarding to the ECTA Driver APP, we added the location “ECTA OFFICE” in Brussels. This location is for submitting test-ratings only. Please feel free to try out rating at that particular location before rating an (un)loading location.

The (un)loading site you are looking for is not yet part of the ECTA Driver APP? Reach out to us ( or contact the company you are driving for to contact us. We are doing our best to grow the amount of (un)loading stations that can be rated by you!

I rated, what now?

Thank you for actively using the ECTA Drivers APP and submitting good as well as honestly bad ratings – based on your experience!
In case you want to submit another rating for a location you already rated, feel free to do. With submitting more than one rating you can reflect on the location´s (missing) improvement. Please note, that you can rate a locations only once per day.

ECTA will follow up with (un)loading locations with a great or bad rating! Details for any follow up of ECTA will start 2024 and more details about it will be published soon.

We, as ECTA, are the only ones that can see your individual rating. Your connected company/companies can only see how many times you submitted ratings and for what locations. 
We, as ECTA, only publish anonymous average ratings within the app. Moreover, we will publish the best (un)loading locations per quarter on our ECTA Website and contact the (un)loading locations that were rated bad to motivate those for changes. Details for that to be published 2024.

Furthermore, there will be news and information on our APP News Website: – this landingpage is for ECTA APP Admins and Drivers only. Please do not forward this link.

By publishing this information, we want to motivate the (un)loading sites to improve their safety and efficiency performance while they show respect for your daily work. Thanks to your shared experiences!
