About Satellic

Satellic was appointed in July 2014 by the three Regions in Belgium to collect toll on their behalf from heavy goods vehicles of over 3.5 tons. This means that Satellic had committed to design, build, finance, maintain and operate a complete kilometer charging system within less than two years.

Satellic uses satellite technology (GNSS) together with mobile (GSM) and dedicated short range communication (DSRC) to operate its On Board Units.

On 1 October 2015 Satellic began to distribute the On Board Unit (OBU) and started technical operations. On 1 April 2016 Satellic launched the commercial operations.

At the end of 2016, Satellic had more than 530.000 active OBUs in the field for the tolling of heavy goods vehicles in Belgium. Between 130.000 and 140.000 heavy goods vehicles subject to toll use the Belgium road network every working day. The majority of active OBUs are used by Belgian (21%), Polish (15%), Dutch (10%), German (10%) and French (6%) transport companies.

Satellic NV is a Belgian company with more than 110 employees located in Diegem. It was set up by T-Systems and Strabag, two companies with extensive experience in road charging systems, and works under the supervision of Viapass.
