Arvato signs new client to Maastricht site

03 Jul 2015

Arvato Benelux B.V. will welcome new client Satellic to its Maastricht site from 1st October.

A signed three-year contract charges Arvato Benelux with providing customer service via telephone, email, mail and chat, on behalf of the Belgian kilometre charging system for trucks over 3,5 tons.

Tom Custers, Business Unit Manager Customer Services at Arvato Benelux B.V., said that the new partnership with Satellic NV presented an exciting opportunity, made possible with the assistance of Arvato’s international sales team.

“We look forward to servicing Satellic’s diverse customers – from truck drivers to fleet managers - in four languages: Dutch, German, French and English,” he said.

“This partnership also presents an exciting new challenge, as we will provide round-the-clock service, seven days a week, for the first time.”

Frank Hagenmüller, Head of Procurement at Satellic NV, said: “Contracting with Arvato, we are fully convinced having found a reliable and strong partner to even handle the challenging start of operation.”

Arvato will support Satellic’s implementation of a new road tolling system in Belgium, which will go live on 1st April 2016.

The number of customer service agents needed will fluctuate throughout the life of the contract to meet demand peaks. The project will start with 10-20 agents and is likely to swell to 50-60 agents during peak times.

Tom Custers added: “Our partnership with Satellic is also a great opportunity for us to extend our new customer service base in Maastricht. Maastricht is renowned as a customer service hub and we are very focused on growing our presence in the region.”

Located in the Netherlands close to Germany and Belgium, Maastricht provides easy access to staff with multilingual skills. The region is home to approximately 30 customer service companies, employing around 5,000 contact centre workers. This figure is expected to grow to 6,000 by 2020


Additional information:

  • From 1st October 2015 to 31st March 2016, Arvato will assist with the pre-registration phase. From 1st April 2016, when the new Kilometer Charging System comes into effect, Arvato’s service will be broadened to cover invoicing and ongoing unit enquiries.
  • Tolled vehicles must be fitted with an On Board Unit which measures the number of kilometres driven and the journey taken within the Belgian road network (using satellite navigation). The toll is then charged accordingly.
  • Arvato’s logistics arm (based in Zaventem) will manage the distribution of the on board units.
  • Arvato Benelux B.V. is the local branch of the international service provider Arvato Bertelsmann (part of the global media group Bertelsmann). The company provides customer service from three sites in the Netherlands: Venlo, Maastricht and Abcoude.
  • Arvato’s newest site in Maastricht was established in February 2014 with existing client Zalando. Satellic is the second client for the site.
  • Satellic NV, a Belgian company, was set up in 2014 and is a joint venture between T-Systems and Strabag, two companies with extensive experience in road charging systems. Satellic is working for Viapass, an inter-regional entity which represents the Flemish, Walloon and Brussels regions.
