Beginning in December, Tolltickets – a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kapsch TrafficCom – will add an additional 800km of toll roads in Norway, several ferry providers and the Øresund and Storebaelt bridges to its network, expanding its services both for private and business customers across Europe.
In Belgium, where all heavy goods vehicles exceeding a weight of 3.5 tonnes must be equipped with an on-board unit (OBU), Tolltickets’ partners and customers will now benefit from a fully integrated solution.
According to Tolltickets, the Belgium road network is a significant step forward as it connects the company’s users in Central and Eastern Europe with the port of Antwerp, one of the world’s largest seaports.
With the service expansion, Tolltickets users can now pay tolls in eight countries – Germany, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway – with a single device.
Quentin Couret, COO of Tolltickets, said: “Belgium and Scandinavia are important milestones in our strategy to cover Europe with one single OBU, reducing complexity and increasing profitability for our customers.”
Jan Kersten, managing director of Tolltickets, added: “Since entering the EETS market, Tolltickets has been growing rapidly and continuously added new territories to its existing toll road network. More toll domains and will be added to its existing portfolio soon.”
