On 2020 June 17 we participated in the meeting of the Working Group on the Digitization of Road Freight Transfers by Road (CMR), where we presented the scope of the DIGINNO-Proto eCMR pilot project in the Baltic Sea countries – the creation of an eCMR indexing/registers whether a legal and reliable eCMR exists and in which country it will be stored. The pilot project will involve logistics companies, carriers and responsible institutions from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland. At the meeting, we discussed Lithuania’s involvement in pilot testing.
We also informed the participants about the eFTI regulation (EU regulation on electronic freight information). The regulation obliges the Member States to adopt e-mail freight information through a certified national platform. Over the next 2.5 years, The European Commission will need to develop technical specifications for the functional requirements of eFTI platforms and rules for data transmission, processing and protection, among others. The EU state regulation will have to be implemented by 2025 August.
