The solution initially supports the toll systems in Belgium including the Liefkenshoektunnel, France, Italy, Austria, Poland, Portugal and Spain.
“In order to be able to offer our customers the best possible solution for interoperable electronic toll services (EETS), we have thoroughly tested the new UTA One prior to its launch”, explains Volker Huber, CEO at UTA. “Thorough testing on miles of real-life trips to Strasbourg, Calais, Brussels, Aachen, Bolzano, Innsbruck and Salzburg has shown the toll solution to be reliable.” The benefits for forwarding agents and transport companies are numerous: They can soon use a single OBU to travel across Europe and all fees are charged to one invoice. Because as a mobility service provider UTA also handles administration and evaluation, customers will need just one partner.
In a next step, Germany and other European countries will be added by what is called an over-the-air update – the number of countries will continue to rise, because UTA will continuously expand its offerings as additional toll systems are launched within the EETS.
