Ecotax will be toll chargeecotax

After earlier news about exemption and reduction of the Ecotax network, there is once again Ecotax news.
The French government has now decided to completely reshape Ecotax. Unfortunately, there appears to be no adjustment for international transport. At the moment, the plan is to begin charging only international transport by roadtolls rather than the Ecotax.This plan should begin no later than 1 January 2015, after having been decided upon and announced last week by French minister, Manuel Valls. The toll will apply to vehicles over 3.5 tonnes, and will be introduced mainly on the main governmental roads.

Latvia motorway user charge is coming… are you ready?

 

Motorway user charge Latvia to start 1 July 2014Toll Latvia.svg

The Motorway User Charge is a time based charge to use Latvia’s main roads, which is also called an electronic Vignette. The system is quite similar to the current Eurovignette system that runs in BENELUX, Denmark and Sweden. Anyone who drives or operates a heavy goods vehicle (HGV) weighing 3.5 tonnes or more will need to pay the user charge before the vehicle enters the country.

 

What do I have to pay?
The daily charge for a vehicle is between € 8 and € 11 (between €400 and €925 per year), depending on the type of vehicle, number of axles and weight. You should pay in advance by the day, week, month or year.

 

How can I pay?
The best way is to go to www.lvvignette.eu and pay by VISA, MasterCard or American Express. There is no need to register.Fleet and/or fuel cards will not be accepted! It is also possible to buy vignettes in selected locations in Latvia. You can do this at a fuel station or at the sales office of the Latvian government. Multi Service Tolls believes that at this moment booking and payment through the website is the most flexible option and offers the best control for trucking companies.

French Minister Maneul Valls has let the media know that he is deciding between two options for Ecotax, which is expected to be introduced in October.

  1. An exemption for the first (to be determined) mileage.
  2. Limiting the Ecotax roads. For example, only the main roads next to the already excisting toll roads.

Both solutions are designed to relieve the French regional carriers.

Toll news in Germany and the Netherlands

toll
Toll in Germany
It is not yet final, but the German Maut seems to be extended to trucks of 7.5 tonnes rather than 12 tonnes. If and when this is going to be entered exactly is not known at this time.
Toll in the Netherlands
The Dutch Transport Minister Schultz has filed a draft law regarding tolling. This draft law is limited to two projects, namely the Blankenburger tunnel to be built and the extension of the A15 to the A12. Neither project will be completed before 2019.
There will be no use of toll plazas due to lack of space, but they will use the so-called “free-flow” technique.
Why toll? The main reason is that both projects can be financed and completed with the use of tolls.

Ecotax

The French parliament is still planning to implement Ecotax. Ecotax is the per-kilometer tax based for the Routes Nationales (RN) and Routes Departementales (RD) .

The introduction of Ecotax will be with some new regulations. The French parliament is considering a dispensation of the first 400-1000 kilometers per truck, per year.

 This dispensation is intended primarily for French farmers and regional carriers, but it will likely also apply to foreign carriers.

Additionally, there is a plan to increase the tax for toll agencies. This may have consequences for toll prices in the future.

We will report any additional, important news regarding Ecotax as it becomes available.
