Just 100 days after the launch of the kilometre charging for trucks in Belgium, Satellic makes a first assessment on this launch period and asks several stakeholders about their perception.

Satellic, who collects toll on behalf of Viapass for the regions, was sued before the Court of First Appeal in Brussels by 97 companies backed by UPTR. Their demand to postpone the billing until a court-appointed expert confirms the well-functioning of the system was rejected by the judge.

From 1 April 2016 all heavy goods vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tonnes will have to be equipped with an On Board Unit (OBU) in working order to pay road tolls in Belgium.

While more than 300.000 vehicles have already been registered in the Satellic system, Satellic is ramping up efforts to enable every company to ensure timely compliance with the kilometre charging, which will enter into force on 1 April.

In order to motivate truck owners to get their On Board Units (OBUs) on-time for the Belgian Kilometre Charging System, Satellic – collecting toll on behalf of the regions in Belgium and currently only operator – organised a raffle in aid of SOS Children’s Villages with two jackpots of 20,000 lit
