Electronic toll collection (ETC) has recently taken a turn and is now becoming a global trend.

Debts, ageing population, reduced fuel tax revenue and above all, sharp increase in infrastructure building costs have transformed tolling from a local revenue generating scheme to a national policy applied worldwide.

In this context electronic tolling and road user charging have become recognised methods to collect tolls in an efficient, fair and sustainable way.

Today however, we are confronted by a multitude of technology standards and toll types that are not only incompatible with each other but also incompatible with the demands of our society.

This is why we have spent 18 months researching the ETC market and analysing its evolution. As with our past publications, it is written to become the reference document for its industry. (A short 95-page abstract can be downloaded here)

At over 650 pages, it encompasses everything there is to know about the various road charging mechanisms. The study includes over 170 charts, diagrams, illustrations and tables.

ETC Global Study figures

The reference tool for strategic decision making


The Electronic Toll Charging Global Study contains a wide array of analysis and commentary on all aspects of road charging and connected services, in addition to country profiles assessing the opportunities for road chargers and solutions providers
