  • Kilometre Charging System in Belgium: Service points are open 24/7 so that OBUs can be obtained before 1 April

    From 1 April 2016 all heavy goods vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tonnes will have to be equipped with an On Board Unit (OBU) in working order to pay road tolls in Belgium. Satellic, the only operator authorised to collect toll for the regions on behalf of Viapass, strongly advises those who have not yet obtained or ordered an OBU for 1 April to visit a service point. For those who have already obtained one of the 400,000 OBUs ordered to date, the company advises installing, switching on and using it as much as possible both in Belgium and abroad.
