Toll4Europe to become a single source for European tolls

Jun 18, 2017

T-Systems International GmbH, Daimler AG and DKV EURO SERVICE GmbH + Co KG have founded a joint venture company for the development and provision of the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) for vehicles with more than 3.5 t. All responsible competition authorities had previously given their approval for the joint venture.  

The joint venture operates under the name Toll4Europe GmbH. The objective of Toll4Europe is to reduce the complexity between national toll chargers and service providers. The Toll4Europe platform will enable service providers of all sizes to offer their customers an EETS service as a sales partner.  

T-Systems owns 55% of Toll4Europe, Daimler 30% and DKV 15%. Toll4Europe will therefore be governed by T-Systems, a company that brings over 14 years of toll experience into the joint venture and is responsible for the technology as well as the sales partner management. Daimler contributes its expertise for the future integration of the on-board unit into the vehicle. DKV's contribution is 25 years' experience in the toll business and the know-how gained from billing 30 European tolls to, currently, 140,000 customers.   

The new company creates the necessary conditions to technically implement the planned toll box throughout European tolling systems; it will be introduced in 2018.  At first, the box is intended to cover Belgium, Germany, France, Austria and Poland. The plan is to integrate Italy, Portugal, Spain and Hungary right from the start as well, or very soon afterwards. In the medium term, the aim is for all present and future road, bridge and tunnel tolls to be collected using the same, single device.
