Increase of heavy vehicle charges in Switzerland
The costs for heavy vehicles (LSVA, Leistungsabhängige Schwerverkehrsabgabe) will be increased by resolution of the Swiss parliament (Schweizerischer Bundesrates) effective January 1st, 2017. The reclassification of the Euro-norms 3 / 4 / 5 and cessation of the reduced LSVA for Euro 6 are resulting in increased LSVA-costs of approx. 16%. This will produce higher freight cahrges within Switzerland of about 2%.
We will pass on these higher cahrges effected by law to the freight payers.
