"The tag market in Portugal is expected to grow in the coming years for several reasons. Old tag technology is expected to be substituted by the newest technology, conversion of shadow tolling roads to real tolling will continue and not at least due to the potential electronic licence plate program in Portugal. In this respect it is very important for Q-Free to be Via Verde's preferred tag supplier and the first company ever to deliver the newest tag technology in Portugal", CEO in Q-Free Øyvind Isaksen comments.
