M. Sc. Thesis discusses the tolling system in the free-flow for heavy goods vehicles in the
Republic of Slovenia. From activities taken we can conclude that in the next years electronic
toll collection system will become functional, initially only for heavy goods vehicles and in
the next phase also for passenger cars. Introduction of electronic toll collection system in the
free-flow will from technical point of view open way to many possibilities that such a system
can provide in addition to its primary purpose - the tolling of vehicles. M. Sc. Thesis focuses
on logistics in freight transport by road, on improvement of the supply chain management and
on freight optimization which this technology will enable. Road safety is also important issue.
In addition to the activities on electronic toll collection in free-flow exercised by the Republic
of Slovenia, the important fact is that on the international level the European Union is
building a global satellite navigation system Galileo. One of the objectives of this M. Sc.
Thesis is to consider the interests of all actors involved to determine what options may be
used to upgrade the electronic toll system for heavy goods vehicles and what possibilities the
system's technical characteristics will allow. In this context the M. Sc. Thesis also presents the
planned applications of the European satellite navigation system Galileo.
