Important Notice for Truck Operators in Germany!

Germany has implemented a groundbreaking CO2-dependent truck toll system for vehicles over 3.5 tons.

Germany has implemented a groundbreaking CO2-dependent truck toll system for vehicles over 3.5 tons. This initiative aims to promote sustainability and reduce carbon emissions in the transportation sector. To ensure accurate toll rates based on emissions, vehicles registered for toll collection must be classified into one of the five CO2 emission classes.

We kindly request all truck operators to update their vehicle information in the Toll Collect system or MSTS Tolls portals before December 1, 2023. This update is crucial to ensure proper classification and toll calculation for your vehicles.

As part of the registration process, you will be required to provide additional parameters and submit specific documents. Failure to provide these details may result in your vehicle being assigned to the most emission-intensive class, leading to significantly higher toll charges.

It's important to note that this new toll system does not apply to vehicles registered before July 1, 2019, as they are automatically assigned to Class 1.

To facilitate a seamless process, we are pleased to inform you that customers using our EETS (Electronic European Toll Service) solutions will be able to soon add conveniently this information on our portal instead of going through Toll Collect directly. This streamlines the process and ensures accurate and efficient toll management.

To update your vehicle information, please refer to the following documents:

Registration certificate of the vehicle and trailer: This document contains essential information such as CO2 emission value (V7), displacement (CM3), engine power (kW), technical weight of the vehicle (kg), and technical weight of the trailer (if applicable).

Vehicle Manufacturer's Document (CIF): Sent to the buyer of the vehicle, this document provides detailed technical specifications, including CO2 emissions and fuel consumption information. It includes data such as cab type, CO2 emission value, engine displacement, engine power, number of axles driven, and technical weight of the vehicle.

Certificate of Approval/Certificate of Conformity (COC): This document confirms that your vehicle has EU type-approvals and complies with environmental regulations. It contains information such as cabin type, CO2 emission value, and chassis type.

By updating your vehicle information accurately and promptly, you will ensure compliance with the CO2-dependent truck toll system and contribute to a greener and more sustainable transportation industry.

For further assistance and information, please visit our portal or contact our customer support team. We are here to help you navigate the process smoothly and answer any questions you may have.

Together, let's embrace this new era of sustainable transportation and create a greener future for all.
