Important: Belgium charges toll as of April 1st
29 March 2016
For quite some time now, speculations have been going on about tolls in Belgium. Last week, announcements were made that these will most likely be effective as of April 1st 2016. The tolls will result in an immediate increase in costs for consignments to Belgium as well as for consignments crossing Belgium.
The law will have its effect on the trucking industry, but also on us and you as our customer. For every consignment to Belgium and consignment crossing Belgium, tolls will apply.
Consequently Ritra Cargo is forced to charge the following additional amount:
- €40,- per container transport crossing Belgium;
- €15,- to €80,- per container transport to Belgium (depending on the distance);
- 10% on top of the price of the transport to Belgium;
- €1,- for every pallet (groupage) crossing Belgium.
Above mentioned costs will be shown separately on your invoice receipt.
Several countries are currently objecting to the Belgian tolls. Therefore, it might be postponed. If this will be the case, we will of course inform you immediately. It goes without saying that we will not charge the toll in case the decision is postponed.
