At the end of June 2018, the world's first complete renewal of a nationwide tolling system has successfully been completed. ASFINAG – the Austrian Motorway Operator - migrated the entire tolling system without interruption of operation and with a minimum loss of revenue.
The «GO Maut» collects two thirds of ASFINAG's toll revenues of around 2 billion Euros per year. Therefore, a timely preparation of the tender and the frictionless rollout of the new «GO Maut 2.0 toll system» had highest priority. We supported from 2015 to June 2018 ASFINAG in defining the procurement strategy, preparing the tender documents, evaluating the bids and implementing the «GO Maut 2.0» in the area of technical consultancy, testing and project management.
In addition to the required «technology refresh», the annual operating costs could also be significantly reduced by the new call for tender.
Since September 2005, a toll for heavy goods vehicles has been levied in Germany. Toll Collect was responsible for setting up the system and has been operating the toll and control system ever since. Since November 2011, we are supporting the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) and the Federal Office for Goods (BAG) on technical questions concerning the heavy goods vehicles toll.
The technical consulting services included support in
- operation and daily business of the toll system,
- extension of the system to include federal roads (from 12’000 Km in 2005 to approx. 40’000 Km since July 2018),
- introduction of the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS),
- tendering procedure for the 2018 operator contract and due diligence.
