Increase in truck toll rates in Germany

The German government has decided to increase the toll rates for trucks with a permissible total weight of 7.5 metric tons or more as of 1 January, 2023. Accordingly the toll rates for motorways and federal roads will be adjusted and external costs, such as air and noise pollution caused by trucks, will also be taken into account. These adjustments will result in an increase in toll rates in all classes. This must be taken into account in the toll tables of DACHSER.
