The distance-based Heavy Vehicle Charge (HVC) applies to all Swiss and foreign vehicles that have a total weight of more than 3.5 metric tonnes. Their height is measured according to the following three criteria:

  • The distance covered in Switzerland
  • Permitted total weight of the vehicle
  • Emissions of the vehicle (Euro category)

You can find the currently valid HVC rates on the website of the Swiss Customs Administration.
