Toll Collect is an efficient technology service provider for toll collection and enforcement. Since 1 January 2005, it has been operating one of the largest toll systems in the world. Our main task is collecting the truck tolls in Germany according to the legal regulations and transferring them to the German Treasury, where they are earmarked for road infrastructure use. Since 2005, around 74 billion euros have been sent to the German Treasury.
Through reliably collecting tolls, we are making an important contribution to the maintenance and development of road infrastructure. Tolls are collected based on distance, emission class and weight class, which helps to ease the burden on the environment. In this way, truck tolls also make an important contribution to meeting climate objectives.
Toll Collect has been a federal enterprise since 2018, with the Federal Republic of Germany as its sole shareholder. As an enterprise belonging to the German government, the company purpose of Toll Collect was expanded. On the basis of our core service and central competence in toll collection, we are expanding our scope of tasks and becoming a service platform for the German government in Infrastructure and Digital Services. For example, we are taking over the development of a newly founded subsidiary, the Federal Mobile Communications Infrastructure Company [Mobilfunkinfrastrukturgesellschaft] which, together with the Federal Office for Goods Transport (BAG), is establishing the uniform toll recognition service for European Electronic Toll Service providers and supporting the BAG in the area of roadside enforcement service.
