Our story

EROAD was established in 2000, with a goal of developing a technology-based solution to modernise paper-based road tax systems. R&D began on a solution that would modernise New Zealand’s road user charging system.

In 2007 former Navman chief executive and co-founder, Steven Newman, joined the company and EROAD began commercialising its vision to become a global GNSS tolling provider.

In 2009, EROAD implemented the world’s first network-wide GPS/cellular-based road user charging system, which modernised the existing paper-based RUC (road user charges) regime in New Zealand. 

Between April 2010 and March 2012 EROAD grew more than 2,700% and in December 2012 was ranked tenth on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific.

In April 2014 EROAD commercially launched in Oregon, becoming the first approved electronic Weight-Mile Tax (WMT) service provider in North America. 

EROAD also entered the Australian market in 2014.
