In the first four days of the new year, NDS sold highway stamps for EUR 1.64 million
“The National Highway Company has successfully taken control of the sale of highway stamps. Since the beginning of 2024, it has been managing several hundred points of sale and the online sale of highway stamps. The technically demanding process was mastered without significantly limiting customer comfort,” said NDS in a statement for the media.
Since the beginning of the year, NDS has been a full-fledged manager of the sale of highway stamps. On December 21, 2023, a contract was signed to take over part of the SkyToll company, which deals with the sale, distribution and operation of electronic highway signs. In less than two weeks, the state-owned joint-stock company managed to complete all the necessary legal, economic, personnel and technical aspects of taking over part of the company.
The main work on taking over the administration of the IT system took place directly during the New Year’s Eve, when a technical shutdown was necessary. It started shortly after 11pm and ended shortly after one o’clock on New Year’s Day.
“The time was determined so that the shutdown of the system affected customers only to a minimal extent. Two necessary shutdowns are still planned as part of the system setup. The next one will start again in the night hours from Saturday to Sunday, January 7, 2024.” explained the highwaymen.
