Road charging for trucks draws closer in Belgium 10 March 2016

All HGVs must have a functioning On Board Unit

On April 1, 2016, the three regions of Belgium will implement a kilometre tax for heavy goods vehicles over 3.5 tonnes. The rate of road pricing will vary depending on the maximum permissible weight (MPW) of the trucks, their Euro emission class and type of the road being used.

In order to avoid bottlenecks at the points of sales of AGES on the Belgian territory during the transition to the Charge, all parties concerned have agreed to allow previous purchase of e-vignettes, valid from April 1st 2016. The opportunity for Belgian carriers to purchase a valid e-vignette for the use on the taxable network of participating Member States (NL, LU, SE, DK) will be done both through the online registration (OIP) and through points of sale (POS ) in Belgium.

The timetable planning of the switch of the country list:

> Tuesday March 8: switch of the country list for online registration

> Thursday March 10: switch of the country list at the terminals in a first stage (BE,LU, FR, NL, DE)

> Sunday March 13: switch of the country list at the terminals in a second stage (GB, FI, SE, DK)
