Technical Tour: Toll Collect Tours & NetworkingWednesday, 2 May 201209:15 to 10:15Off site tabsOutlineToll Collect operates the world's first satellite-based toll system. The company collects and invoices road usage charges for trucks weighing 12 tonnes or more on motorways and selected trunk roads in Germany. An innovative technique using a combination of wireless and satellite technologies ensures reliable charging and billing. The system supports environmental protection because the amount of toll charged is based on the number of vehicle axles and the emission class. The toll system contributes significantly to the financing of transport infrastructure in Germany.Each day, some 500 Toll Collect employees work to ensure smooth system operation with a detection accuracy rate of 99.9%. This reliable operation secures several billion Euros in revenue for the German federal budget. System operating costs are currently equivalent to around 11.2% of revenue. About 140 000 transport and logistics companies from 41 countries and more than 700 000 vehicles are registered with Toll Collect.Toll Collect GmbH shareholders include Daimler Financial Services AG (45%), Deutsche Telekom AG (45%) and Cofiroute (10%). The client is the German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development, represented by the Federal Office for Goods Transport.This activity allows Summit participants to experience a 30-minute live demonstration tour near the Congress Centre on how satellite-based road charging technology works.
