FETC to implement free flow ETC system in foreign markets after domestic success
It is well known that highways are the lifeblood of metropolitan transportation. To increase the speed of highways and the convenience of road users, Taiwan entrusted Far Eastern Electronic Toll Collection (FETC), a subsidiary of the Far Eastern Group, with the operation of the nation's highway electronic toll collection (ETC) system through a build-operate-transfer (BOT) model in 2004. More commonly known as just the "ETC" in Taiwan, the system has weathered through its early difficulties and controversies 17 years ago to become a model to replicate for countries around the globe, says FETC International vice president and chief technology officer, Richard Wu. FETC International is now planning to share its successful ETC model and experience in Taiwan to foreign markets.
