Vienna/Lyon, January 09, 2016 – Tolling service and solution provider Axxès and Kapsch TrafficCom announce their willingness to cooperate further in the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) domain. The planned long term partnership is based on a close and strong cooperation in order to offer a better and wider range of services to both road users and operators.
The companies have been working successfully together for years with great achievements such as the “Viapass Kilometer Charge” for trucks of over 3.5 tons in Belgium. The commonly introduced solution was the first to be successfully certified as EETS in time for the commencement date on 1st April 2016. Axxès serves a fleet of 200,000 trucks equipped with a GNSS solution by Kapsch.
Axxès and Kapsch have decided to leverage on their long lasting cooperation by working jointly on the development of their solutions. Both companies are willing to address the new toll domains opened to the EETS Market in the near future, starting with Germany and Italy.
Axxès and Kapsch anticipate their cooperation to be beneficial to the mobility of the end users and an incentive to the ETS market in Europe.
With over 30,000 client companies, Axxès as EETS provider is the dynamic player in the interoperable HGV toll market.

Our ambitions are to set the benchmark for interoperable toll collection in Europe and to be the essential partner for road transporters.
