Toll tags to save fleets time

FLEETS could make use of a new technology designed for companies whose drivers regularly use the M6 Toll road.

If the vehicles are already equipped with and use technology produced by Masternaut, they can be equipped with a tag pre-loaded with £30-worth of credit.

The M6 Toll operators have joined forces with Masternaut to provide the service, which they claim can cut fleet costs and improve performance.

The tags incorporate a high-frequency radio transmitter. Barriers are raised automatically and the account debited automatically. Transactions and account details are also available online.

Tom Fanning, managing director of Midand Expressway Limited which operates the toll, said: ‘Working with Masternaut made a lot of sense as we both use tried and tested technology. We’ve also recently announced the introduction of Tag discounts for account holders which means regular users will save 5% on every journey from June 14.’
