“Given that the period for preparing the operation of the toll system post 2016 is getting shorter and shorter, in view of the expiry of the contract with the current toll system operator we considered it logical at that time for the Ministry of Transportation to use Deloitte’s know-how and team,” said Jiří Vítek, Director in the Consulting function at Deloitte and a major expert in tolling systems and issues in the Czech Republic.
The team that Deloitte assembled for performing the engagement comprised experts that have been engaged in e-toll issues for almost 15 years in a number of European countries, including the Czech Republic. As part of previous projects, these advisors gained unique insights and experience that the Ministry of Transportation might have benefited from in its efforts to ensure the continued operation of the toll system.
