What is BP’s cross-border travel solution?

The EETS is a pan European cross-border travel solution, one that lets businesses use a single subscription, provider, and piece of kit to access tolls across the continent.

BP is one of the providers that your business can use to get the benefits of the EETS and its Tollbox is the OBU (On-Board Unit) you need to get them.

It works in combination with the BP + Aral fuel card, one of the many great fuel cards your business can use to cut down on admin and operate more efficiently.

You can find a list of excellent fuel cards at iCompario, a website that allows you to enter your requirements and find the best fuel card for your business.

How does it make cross-border travel easier?

While there are plenty of benefits to BP’s Tollbox, it’s pretty simple to grasp how it makes cross-border travel easier – it lets your drivers use tolls across the continent with the minimum of hassle.

You can use already use BP’s Tollbox in some of Europe’s most important nations:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Norway
  • Portugal
  • Spain

It also gives you access to the Polish A4 and is soon to be accepted in the following countries:

  • Bulgaria
  • Czech Republic
  • Hungary
  • Poland
  • Romania
  • Slovakia
  • Slovenia

What do I get with the BP Tollbox?

The BP Tollbox is an OBU that allows businesses to pass-through tolls across Europe quicker and more effectively. It does this primarily by producing a single invoice to record all the travel expenses of your trucks, but that’s not the only benefit you get from it.

Some of the other perks you get from BP’s cross-border travel solution include:

  • 24/7 access to every EETS service
  • Real-time reports of all toll payments
  • Completely free updates via wireles

Why has BP introduced its cross-border travel solution?

There are some key reasons I could give for why BP has introduced its Tollbox, but I’ll let BP’s UK fuel card manager, Jo McDonnell, do the talking:

“We are excited to offer fleet managers and drivers a sophisticated technical solution to border crossing with the BP Tollbox for EETS.

“After a successful launch in Europe last year, the BP Tollbox for EETS now eases travel across nine European countries.

“We know its debut in the UK will help increase fleet transparency and significantly reduce administrative efforts.”

So there you have it, transparency and a reduction in admin for your business.

EETS has made it easier for businesses to operate throughout Europe and BP’s Tollbox allows you to get all the benefits of it.

If your company operates across the continent then invest a little time in getting this OBU and you’ll notice the drop-off in your admin work.
