Verra Mobility Subsidiary Is Granted European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) Provider Certification To Expand European Toll Offering
Verra Mobility receives critical European certification to enable a more seamless interoperable toll experience throughout Europe
Verra Mobility Corporation a leading provider of smart mobility technology solutions, announces today that its subsidiary has gained certification as a European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) provider, becoming the first EETS-accredited company in Spain. Verra Mobility is a global provider of toll management services in the rental car, fleet management and consumer segments.
EETS regulation applies to all EU member states with current or future toll infrastructure development plans and targets to facilitate daily operations for road users, improve traffic flow and reduce congestion by limiting cash transactions at toll stations and eliminating complex procedures for occasional toll road users.
“The EETS Directive is a major step by the European Commission to improve a fragmented toll payment infrastructure across the European Union road network”, stated Tsjerk-Friso Roelfzema, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Verra Mobility Europe. “It will help to create higher transparency for both toll users and chargers and remove the challenges of cross border travel in countries with extensive tolling infrastructure like Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, the UK, Ireland, and others.”
With 15 years of international tolling experience, Verra Mobility offers innovative toll management services for commercial fleets and consumers across Europe, including managing on-board units, guaranteeing payments, and integrating with toll operators. The company provides hardware and software solutions, removing the complexity of European toll payments, and enabling its customers to focus on their core business.
“We believe our services offer a tremendous amount of convenience and value,” stated Roelfzema. “We are excited about our EETS certification which will enhance and extend our current toll related services across more borders. Our goal is to provide a truly pan-European toll management solution, for each vehicle to be equipped with only one on-board unit associated with one account. Our services will become increasingly important as Road User Charging progresses in member states.”
With the newly granted EETS certification, the company will continue to work with its valued partners and accelerate the expansion of its toll solutions to provide improved toll services and a truly unified European tolling experience.
