EETS: DKV BOX EUROPE to settle tolls across Hungary

As of now, mobility service provider DKV starts with the pilot phase for the settlement of tolls via the DKV BOX EUROPE in Hungary. The Hungarian HU-GO toll system includes all highways, express roads and national roads. DKV customers can already use the DKV CARD to pay tolls in Hungary. With the DKV BOX EUROPE, DKV will soon offer an efficient and profitable cross-border alternative for Hungary with state-of-the-art value-added services.

"Currently our customers can settle tolls cashless across Germany, Belgium, France, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Bulgaria as well as at the Warnow crossing, the Herren Tunnel, and the Liefkenshoektunnel. We are proud to be able to add Hungary to this list very soon”, says Jerome Lejeune, Managing Director Toll at DKV. “We have thus reached another important milestone on our way to connect all of Europe with one box. More countries will follow soon.” DKV customers benefit from a profitable postpay offer which has a positive effect on their liquidity.

In recent years, Hungary has developed into a central logistics location in the Central and Eastern European region alongside the Czech Republic. For the Ukraine, Romania and several Balkan states, the way to the EU markets almost inevitably leads through the Carpathian Basin, for Croatia Hungary represents an alternative to Austria, which is also a neighbor. The importance of Hungary as a transit country between North/West and East/South-East Europe is already evident from the fact that four EU transport corridors cross the country.
