The new UTA One is available as of April 3, 2018. With the interoperable toll solution by Union Tank Eckstein GmbH & Co. KG (UTA) toll can now be settled in all participating EU countries. The solution initially supports the toll systems in Belgium including the Liefkenshoektunnel, France, Italy, Austria, Poland (A4), Portugal and Spain.
In a next step, Germany and other European countries will be added by what is called an over-the-air update – the number of countries will continue to rise, because UTA will continuously expand its offerings as additional toll systems are launched within the EETS. The new update option along with the integration of all transfer standards of the European toll environments (GNSS and DSRC) make the new toll solution particularly future-proof.
“In order to be able to offer our customers the best possible solution for interoperable electronic toll services (EETS), we have thoroughly tested the new UTA One prior to its launch”, explains Volker Huber, CEO at UTA. “Thorough testing on miles of real-life trips to Strasbourg, Calais, Brussels, Aachen, Bolzano, Innsbruck and Salzburg has shown the toll solution to be reliable.”
The benefits for forwarding agents and transport companies are obvious: They can soon use a single OBU to travel across Europe and all fees are charged to one invoice. And because as a mobility service provider UTA also handles administration and evaluation, customers will need just one partner.
They will also benefit from a user-friendly ordering and registration process, which is available in several languages at one.uta.com. UTA customers can select the toll environments they require.
