BP’s cross-border travel solution arrives in UK
BP has launched its combined Tollbox for the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) solution in the UK, enabling streamlined travel across Europe.
Already available in other European countries such as Germany, Austria and the Netherlands, the solution is intended to simplify cross-border travel thanks to plug-in and go installation of the On-Board Unit and compatibility with the BP + Aral fuel card. This enables drivers to invoice for fuels and tolls at the same time.
BP’s UK fuel card manager, Jo McDonnell said: “We are excited to offer fleet managers and drivers a sophisticated technical solution to border crossing with the BP Tollbox for EETS. After a successful launch in Europe last year, the BP Tollbox for EETS now eases travel across nine European countries. We know its debut in the UK will help increase fleet transparency and significantly reduce administrative efforts.”
The BP Toll Box On-Board Unit can be installed in a few simple steps and immediately activated while its plug and play design also enables use in different vehicles. The fuel cards that can be used throughout Europe and the turnover processed through them are listed together with the toll charges in one invoice. The Web Portal also allows fleet managers to manage all reporting in one place.
The BP Tollbox for EETS is currently being accepted at tolls in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain, as well as the Polish A4, Fjordforbindelsen Frederikssund bridge, Oresund bridge and Storebaelt bridge. Coverage will continue to grow, with Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia due to be added in future.
