Brussels, 14 May 2021 – As of Thursday 1 July 2021, new tariffs for the kilometer charge will apply in Flanders and Brussels. It concerns an index adjustment. The tariffs apply to all Belgian and foreign heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of more than 3.5 tons and semi-trailer towing vehicles of category N1 with body code BC. No paying toll roads will be added on 1 July. The tariffs for the kilometer charge in Wallonia were indexed on 1 January.
The software of the OBUs (On Board Units) of the six service providers accredited for the kilometer charge in Belgium will be automatically updated with the new tariffs effective in Flanders and Brussels from 1 July. The six service providers are currently Axxès, Eurotoll, Satellic, Telepass, Toll4Europe and Total Marketing Services.
An OBU is a device in a truck cabin that registers the number of kilometers driven on paying toll roads. Trucks and semi-trailer vehicles registered in Belgium or abroad must always drive on public roads in the three regions with an OBU switched on.
The amount per kilometer on toll roads depends on three factors: the region where the road is located, the GVW and the Euro emission standard of the vehicle. The kilometer charge applies to three GVW categories (more than 3.5 tons to 12 tons, more than 12 tons to 32 tons, and more than 32 tons) and seven Euro standards (from the most polluting Euro 0 standard to the most environmentally friendly Euro 6 standard). The higher the Euro standard of the vehicle and the lower its GVW, the more advantageous the tariff per driven kilometer.
On 1 July, the new tariffs will be available for consultation on the download page of the Viapass website. You can already consult the tariffs that are valid from 1 July 2021 here.
