French ECOTAXE: start date postponed

Affinity Transport Solutions recommends registering in good time to avoid delays and fines
The start of the French national roads levy Ecotaxe has been postponed. The French authorities revealed the information last week in a communique. Although the introduction has been postponed, DKV Euro Service advises transport companies to register in good time to avoid delays and fines. According to current information, anyone without a valid OBU on a road to which the Ecotaxe applies could be liable to a fine of 750 euro. On-the-spot registration is of course possible, but this requires the submission of numerous documents.

Companies registering in advance receive a post-pay box. In addition, the French authorities also give a flat-rate discount of 10 per cent on all post-pay boxes. DKV offers its customers a means of simple online registration in just four steps: company data, vehicles, additional options and summary. At the same time, the user also receives a list of all the documents that must be submitted in order to complete the registration without undue delay.
