Toll Collect, the company that manages all the payments, estimates that this new legislation will affect more than 30,000 companies and 140,000 trucks from both Germany and abroad.
Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer said his ministry was projecting around 72 billion euros in annual revenue from the truck toll in coming years. The money will be used for road construction and maintenance, guaranteeing the highest standards of safety, modernity, and efficiency across traffic infrastructure in Germany.
