Diegem, 11 February 2016 - In order to motivate truck owners to get their On Board Units (OBUs) on-time for the Belgian Kilometre Charging System, Satellic organises a raffle in aid of SOS Children’s Villages with two jackpots of 20,000 litres and 10,000 litres of diesel respectively. The name of the first winner was drawn earlier this week. Mr. Jean-Max Barbet, manager of Leroy et Dassonville was announced as the winner and receives a fuel card with 20,000 litres of diesel.
The first draw was made on February 8th, 2016 by TOMBOLiST ASBL. Among the many participants, Leroy et Dassonville was awarded the 20,000 liters of diesel. Mr. Jean-Max Barbet, manager of the winning company located in La Gorgue, North of France, was keen to "thank Satellic for this gift, even if the key motivator was to be prepared on time for the arrival of the kilometre charging and get accustomed with the use of the on Board Unit of Satellic."
Margo Vermeiren, Head of Marketing and Communications at Satellic, explains this promotional action by “the need for truck owners of trucks +3,5 tons to get equipped and try out their On Board Unit as soon as possible in order to be ready for the official launch on April 1st, 2016.” She adds that “Satellic, with the support of its distribution partners, is the only operator that can guarantee the on-time delivery of On Board Units in order to comply with the Belgian Kilometre Charging System.”
In order to participate to the second draw of the raffle, the On Board Unit must be ordered and paid between February 1st and 29th.
