The Slovakian government has introduced a road toll system for all vehicles over 3.5 tons on highways and selected motorways. Almost all line-haul trucks and trailers used to transport parcels to distribution centres and depots in the GLS network are affected by the toll.
The distance related fee depends on the following: the type of road the vehicle uses (highway, speedway, motorway or country road), the number of axles and the emission class.
GLS Slovakia passes on the toll charge to customers. In order to make the truck toll calculation easier, GLS Slovakia has applied a simplified and unified structure.
From 1 July 2016 the current charge is 0,020 EUR on every new kilo of parcel. It is disclosed separately on invoices.
Contact GLS for more information about how the surcharge affects your parcel delivery.
