The Slovak National Motorway Company has awarded a contract to CzechToll, part of ITS Holding, to deliver the software for an electronic toll system to be used for the charging of freight transport in Slovakia.
CzechToll has promised to develop and deliver the e-toll solution within 13 months of signing the contract.
“CzechToll placed the lowest bid in the open competition,” said Petr Chvátal, CzechToll CEO. “Our bid was evaluated as the best in the evaluation of qualitative parameters.
“After settling the comments of the unsuccessful bidders, we are now ready to supply Slovakia with an advanced information system that will enable the Ministry of Transport and the National Motorway Company to implement strategic changes in the area of charging for freight transport.”
CzechToll offered the delivery of the key information system and five years of technological support as part of an open competition at a price of €13.8m (£12.1m) excluding VAT. Subcontractors include fellow ITIS Holding-owned companies SkyToll and TollNet.
CzechToll has operated an electronic toll system in the Czech Republic for more than three years. In 2022, the company reportedly collected 14.85bn Czech Koruna (£547.5m) through the system, while the total costs of operation and system innovation were said to be below the 7% threshold.
