The REETS project has undoubtedly been a success through bringing together a core group of toll chargers and potential EETS providers to resolve some of the commercial and technical questions which were leading to uncertainty. The project reached a broad consensus between toll chargers on how to proceed on the main topics where potential EETS providers needed clarification in order to make service introduction more viable from a commercial perspective.
