T-Systems, Daimler and DKV plan joint venture for European truck toll system

Frankfurt/Stuttgart/Ratingen – T-Systems International GmbH, Daimler AG and DKV EURO SERVICE GmbH + Co. KG plan to work together to develop and deliver European Electronic Toll Services (“EETS”) across the whole of Europe. The anticipated form of collaboration is a joint venture.

The aim is to sign up sales partners to market the EETS services and to process the tolls vis-a-vis the end customers. The intended collaboration is subject to approval by the competition authorities.

The technical basis of the planned services will be a trans-nationally usable on-board unit, which is designed to allow the Europe-wide billing of toll charges using just one single device.

The market launch is scheduled for 2018 in the following countries:

  • Belgium
  • Germany
  • France
  • Austria
  • Poland

The next planned step is to include the following countries, if possible at the time of market launch or at any rate soon afterwards:

  • Italy
  • Portugal
  • Spain
  • Hungary

The offered services are intended to cover all current and future toll roads as well as relevant tunnels and bridges using one single on-board unit.
