European Road User Charging for Heavy Goods Vehicles - An Overview

This paper aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current activities in the area road user charging (RUC) for heavy goods vehicles (HGV) in Europe, more commonly known as Lorry Road User Charging (LRUC). The paper includes descriptions of the road user charging activities in the countries that have already implemented, as well as bringing together information on those who are either currently undertaking a procurement exercise or who are showing interest in the future adoption of such a system. The paper also considers what can be learnt from the trend towards LRUC and the developments by the European Commission, national road authorities and road operators towards achieving some level of interoperability between the systems and the technology.
