Kilometer tax for heavy goods vehicles over 3.5 tonnes
February 18, 2016
On April 1, 2016, the three regions of Belgium (Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia) will implement a kilometre tax for heavy goods vehicles over 3.5 tonnes.
The tax will apply to a significant number of the major roads through Belgium. The road pricing will be calculated based on the maximum permissible weight of the trucks, their Euro emission class and type of the road being used. For vehicles of more than 32 tons, this will be at a rate of €0.149 per km for Euro 4 vehicles and €0.128 per km for Euro 5 and 6 vehicles.
The implementation of such a road price scheme, will impact upon collections, deliveries and movements within Belgium, to and from Belgium and through Belgium.
