As of February 1, 2023, toll rates will increase again. The increase, which impacts all road users, hits transporters hard. Indeed, it is estimated at +4.74% for cars and +5.06% for trucks. Obviously, this price increase is the result of the inflationary context that has been penalizing our economy for several months now. At Transports Goëvia, we have already put in place a maximum of good practices to limit the impact of fuel increases on the rates offered to our customers. Faced with these soaring costs, this time on the highways, your freight carrier is taking the same attitude. We tell you how we are working every day to mitigate the effects of these rate increases on our business and our trucking rate schedule.
How does your carrier contain this increase in spending?
All transporters in Gironde and other French departments are concerned by the increase in the price of oil and freeways… Since these are their main daily expenses!
At Goëvia, we are already multiplying initiatives to reduce our fuel consumption, which allows us to better face inflation (investment in alternative energies such as Oleo100, hybrid engines in town, automatic detection of tire pressure to reduce consumption, eco-driving, etc.).
When inflation impacts highway prices, we deploy all our know-how in order tooptimize each itinerary with a view to efficiency and the best quality/price ratio for our customers. In our teams, the operation uses software developed in-house, specifically designed to optimize each trip according to a multitude of criteria.
Thus, we mobilize the “tolls” resource only when it is necessary. Because even if it is now part of our habits as consumers and individuals, the highway is not necessarily the best option for a carrier.
Generally, the journey is shorter by the national roads, more numerous and more direct. Sometimes we have to use the highway and pay the tolls. But very often, the secondary roads offer us significant advantages: reduction of the number of kilometers traveled, time and fuel savings, smoother traffic. We do not deprive ourselves of this, especially when it allows us to reduce toll expenses for the benefit of our customers!
