The European Car Transport Group of Interest (ECG) has written to EU Transport Commissioner Loyola de Palacio asking her to urge German authorities to rethink the system, which is set to go live at the end of August.
In the letter, ECG president Richard Lawson voices a number of concerns including a lack of availability of on-board units (OBUs), which will he claims cause long tailbacks at toll booths, and the fact their call centre operation staff will only communicate in German, English, French and Polish.
In conclusion, the letter says: 'We are asking the European Commission to urge the German authorities to postpone the introduction of the toll.
'The future of many transport companies and thousands of jobs are in danger. We invite the Commission to find a fair and non-discriminatory solution to this dramatic situation.'
