Thousands of shipments are conducted every day between the Baltics and Poland. These shipments are accompanied by paperwork, licenses, and other pertinent information/data for cargo owners, transportation firms, and governmental agencies. Although the information is often shared and utilized digitally between partners, those papers are accessible on paper. The transition from paper to electronic documents represents an enormous opportunity for companies and government agencies to improve efficiency and openness. The digitization and secure exchange of road freight data are critical components of lowering administrative burdens and minimizing adverse environmental effects.
The present procurement was conducted as part of the DINNOCAP project to arrange for the continued development of features and testing of the cross-border eCMR prototype 2.0 based on the results of the DIGINNO-Proto project. Our company Systems integration solutions, UAB, were the winners of this procurement. The procurement seeks to enhance a chosen number of DIGINNO-Proto prototype features and to introduce additional functionality.
The DIGINNO and DIGINNO-Proto projects prioritized this effort, and the DINNOCAP project seeks to channel the results of the preceding two. The DIGINNO-Proto project (2019-2020) was launched to build and test an eCMR prototype and facilitate international sharing of eCMR data among partner countries Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland. The DIGINNO-Proto project's Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland implemented and tested the eCMR prototype 1.0 in two stages:
To address cross-border regulation requirements, the European Commission approved the eFTI Regulation in summer 2020, and further delegated and implementing acts are being drafted. Parallel to this, the expert group DTLF conducts political and technical specialists from EU member states. Apart from the law, the subject of green e-logistics generates intense debate.
Numerous project efforts in the logistics industry are now in the planning or implementation stages: the CEF projects FEDeRATED and FENIX, which concentrate on implementing the eFTI regulation, and the EU4Digital Digital Transport Corridor, among others. Additionally, countries have begun taking political measures toward establishing a uniform concept of cross-border transportation information sharing. Several examples from the Baltic Sea Region nations' viewpoints include the International Task Force's (Baltic States + EaP) activity beginning in 2020, and the broader NDPTL network, headed by Lithuania this year, concentrating on eCMR. Additionally, the Estonian minister of economic affairs presented a joint position paper on achieving an interoperable electronic freight information exchange system in Europe at the Council of Transport, Telecommunications, and Energy Ministers meeting on 3 June 2021, which Finland supported, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Malta, and Denmark. Across research organizations and academia, topical research and analytical work are conducted.
Cross-border B2B and B2G electronic freight efforts can significantly contribute to developing eFTI technical norms and standards and prepare the market for providing and using eFTI regulation. Belarus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden, and the European Commission are the current members of the NDPTL.
