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 transnationally 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.
