ÁAK asks lorry tracking companies to contribute to e-toll system
Hungary's State Motorway Management Company (ÁAK) has asked companies that offer lorry tracking services for the road haulage industry to contribute to the introduction and operation of an electronic toll system by providing information on the location of vehicles using their own GPS systems, daily Népszabadság said on Thursday. Industry insiders did not warm to the idea, the paper said. A consortium of Hungarian-owned i-Cell and ARH signed a contract in April to set up an e-toll system in Hungary by July 1, 2013. The central budget targets revenue of HUF 75 billion from toll in the second half of this year.
