Viapass, the intelligent kilometer charge for trucks is nearning

15/03/2016   -   The Viapass project, the intelligent kilometer charge for trucks, will become operational from April 1st, 2016 onwards for all trucks over 3.5 tons. These trucks are considered to generate more wear and tear to the road infrastructure and to be more polluting and noisy. The 3 Belgian regions want costs for road infrastructure maintenance and to counter environmental effects to be proportionally charged to the users. This initiative will charge the use of a vehicle, not its ownership. Plans are to expand this measure to other vehicle types.

All freight transport vehicles with a maximum gross vehicle weight (GVW) in excess of 3.5 tons will be charged. Starting April 1st, 2016 these vehicles need to have an On Board Unit (OBU), a device that registers the mileage driven on Belgian roads which is then transmitted to the administrative center for processing. The charges are based on 3 parameters: the GVW, the Euro emission en the type of (tol) road used. For tractors weighing more than 3.5 tons GVW, the total GVW of both tractor and trailer will be used. The Euro emission is a factor used to determine the degree of exhaust pollution. Charges will vary between 0,074 € and 0,292 € per km. More information can be found on the Viapass website (www.viapass.be).

The OBU can be obtained from the Sattelic website (www.satellic.be) or from different distributions points located throughout Belgium. The OBU itself is free but requires a 135 € safety deposit. There are no installation fees as the installation itself is clearly described in the manual and can easily performed by the truck driver.

Some vehicle categories are exempted such as military vehicles, fire trucks, ambulances and trucks used by the civilian protection department. Some vehicles which are used solely for horticultural, agricultural, forestry and fishing activities can be exempted as well. Owners need to request the tax exemption in region where the vehicle is registered by filling out a form including two pictures from the vehicle (one front, one lateral). Additional information can be found on the region websites.
