Danish state-owned infrastructure company Sund & Bælt Holding has awarded a contract to Belgian toll technology provider Be-Mobile to develop and deliver a tolling engine that enables truck toll collection on Denmark’s road network, including collection in low-emission zones in cities.
Following a public procurement process, Be-Mobile, supported by its Danish partner COWI A/S, was selected from three pre-qualified suppliers to assist Sund & Bælt in implementing a distance-based kilometre tolling scheme for trucks in Denmark starting 01 January 2025.
Be-Mobile’s tolling software will support the entire process, from receiving and processing data from moving trucks to calculating toll trips and creating toll billing details. It will do this by creating a digital road map of the Danish road network and considering all relevant toll context, such as height restrictions and road accessibility.
Designed to effectively support toll chargers, Be-Mobile’s solution can also be expanded to facilitate toll collection for passenger cars, should this be needed in the future.
Founded in 2006 offering solutions for monitoring traffic congestion using connected vehicles , Be-Mobile has been active in truck road user charging since 2016, when the company rolled out its map-matching and route-planning services for GNSS toll collection in Belgium – for Viapass – and Germany.
These services are part of Be-Mobile’s connected vehicle platform that also serves fleet management and in-car traffic management (C-ITS). In parallel, Be-Mobile manages Belgian parking payment app 4411 and the Dutch Flitsmeister safety warning and app, representing the largest community of drivers in the Benelux region.
Jan Cools, CEO of Be-Mobile, said: “We see synergies for the coming years between tolling for trucks and passenger cars, combined with value-added services in parking, fleet management and in-car traffic management. With our connected car platform and community services, we are well positioned to play an important role in this evolution.”
Sund & Bælt Holding and Be-Mobile are both speaking at this year’s Road User Charging Conference on 07-08 March 2023 at the Steigenberger Wiltcher’s in Brussels, Belgium. Lise Jonasen, programme manager for kilometre tolling at Sund & Bælt Holding, will provide a status update on the implementation of the GNSS-based tolling scheme for trucks, while Jan Cools, CEO of Be-Mobile, will explain why GNSS-based congestion charging is the most effective way to reach the mobility objectives of a Smart City.
