Europe-wide toll payment with DKV BOX EUROPE

Sep 29, 2017
The DKV BOX EUROPE, which will be offered by DKV Euro Service from 2018, is based on the latest generation Sitraffic Sensus Unit made by Siemens.

It is equipped with hybrid tolling technology; i.e. it can record and calculate both DSRC and GNSS-based tolls (Dedicated Short Range Communications and Global Navigation Satellite System).

“Many of the boxes on the market do not meet all of the technical requirements for Europe-wide toll payment, for example compatibility with the Italian toll system, and may therefore need to be replaced again,” explained Gertjan Breij, Managing Director at DKV Euro Service Benelux. “The DKV BOX EUROPE on the other hand meets the latest requirements of all EU Member States and will be able to be used in future throughout Europe.” The user can install the on-board unit himself and swap it between vehicles. There is no need for time-consuming installation or modification in a specialist workshop. The toll registration and country activation are done conveniently via the DKV online portal. The data is transmitted over the air to the OBU (On-board Unit), boxes no longer need to be replaced in the case of a change of vehicle. This saves a lot of time and administration and the user remains flexible.

The aim is to be able to pay tolls in Belgium, Germany, Austria, Poland and France for the market launch in 2018. Also in time for the market launch or shortly after, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Hungary should be connected. In the medium term all European road, tunnel and bridge tolls should be able to be paid via the DKV BOX EUROPE. Further information can be found at www.dkv-euroservice.com.
