Our Story

About EROAD

EROAD is a fully integrated technology, tolling and services provider, based in Auckland, New Zealand. We were the first company in the world to implement a GNSS/cellular-based road charging solution across an entire country. 

We design and manufacture in-vehicle hardware, operate secure payment and merchant gateways and offer web-based value-added services.

EROAD modernises road charging and compliance for road transport by replacing paper-based systems with easy-to-use electronic systems.

We are the largest provider of road user charges (RUC) compliance in New Zealand, and a leading provider of health and safety compliance and fleet management solutions.
