November 29, 2023
Subsequent to the market information day held on June the 15th 2023, the Toll charger has adjusted the remuneration which was communicated on that day (see relevant slides here: Marktinformatiebijeenkomst inzake de EETS-gebiedsverklaring vrachtwagenheffing voor EETS-aanbieders). Please note that this adjustment is provisional and still under consideration pending the anticipated publication of the EETS-Domain Statement HVGC in Q1 2024. The adjustment is as follows:
- Increase of the fixed periodic fee by €100.000 from €100.000 per provider per year to €200.000 per provider per year, to compensate for administrative activities to be performed by the EETS-providers, relating to auditing and accountancy standards and the determination of CO2-emissionclass of vehicles.
- The variable periodic remuneration of €400.000 in the first year of operation and €250.000 in the second year of operation is due by the Toll Charger to the EETS provider, provided that the EETS-provider has:
- demonstrably performed commercial activities aimed at active participation as an EETS Provider in the EETS Domain HVGC; and
- remitted to the Toll Charger an amount in tolling at least equal to the amount of the variable periodic remuneration in the respective year.
Draft stimulus package for 2024-2025 & Draft multi-year programme for 2026-2030 recycling of heavy goods vehicle charge revenues
The Heavy Goods Vehicle Charge is expected to be introduced in The Netherlands in 2026. As a result, domestic and foreign heavy goods vehicles will pay a tariff per kilometre for their use of part of the Dutch road network. The net proceeds from the Heavy Goods Vehicle Charge will flow back into the transport sector in the form of investments in innovation and sustainability.
The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water management and the representatives of the transport sector have jointly formulated the following sustainability and innovation goal: the accelerated transition to zero-emission freight transport, in the form of battery-electric and hydrogen-powered heavy goods vehicles, (temporary) use of renewable fuels and optimisation of the logistics chain, which contributes to a reduction in the number of transport kilometres driven.
The various measures will be explained in detail, later on in the annexed document. Furthermore, it presents a list of basic principles, an explanation of the sustainability and innovation goals, and an explanation of the monitoring and evaluation system. Together, these elements form the draft Stimulus Package for 2024-2025 and the draft Multi-Year Programme (draft MYP) for 2026 -2030 for recycling of the revenues of the Heavy Goods Vehicle Charge.
Below you find the Draft stimulus package for 2024-2025 and Draft multi-year programma for 2026-2030 recycling of heavy goods vehicle charge revenues.
