In connection with the increased requirements for the quality and safety of transport services in a pandemic, digitalization is becoming especially important. Considerable attention is paid to this issue in the EAEU integration agenda. This was stated by a member of the Board (Minister) for Energy and Infrastructure of the Eurasian Economic Commission Emil Kaikiev at the Plenary Discussion of the International Transport and Logistics Congress TRANSRUSSIA, the main topic of which was “Development of cargo transportation in modern realities. Trends, Prospects, Limitations, New Opportunities ”.
As the EEC Minister noted, in the Greater Eurasia region, it is important to ensure the transportation of goods using the most modern tools, regulatory mechanisms and technologies that rely on digital solutions. This will allow achieving the coherence of all elements of the supply chains, “seamless” transportation and end-to-end logistics, eliminating differences in the technological aspects of the functioning of the transport industries.
“Also in the focus of our attention is the harmonization of national intelligent transport systems, as well as the introduction of paperless technologies in the organization and registration of cargo transportation in international traffic,” said Emil Kaikiev.
The EEC Minister said that the Commission, together with the transport ministries, is completing the preparation of a roadmap for the implementation of the EAEU transport policy for 2021-2023. In the near future, the Union plans to resolve the issues of regulating mixed and container traffic, expanding air traffic, developing intelligent transport systems and introducing digital technologies.
In addition, he recalled that in December 2020, the presidents of the EAEU states signed an important document – Strategic directions for the development of Eurasian economic integration until 2025, which is of great importance for the implementation of transport policies by the EAEU countries. Through joint efforts of the Commission and the countries of the Union, it is planned to provide transportation activities with such support measures as the formation in the EAEU of a single commodity distribution network, industrial cooperation, the creation of a single transit system, the formation of services and elements of the ecosystem of digital platforms, the launch of digital customs and digital trade, improvement of the information exchange system and formation of a “single window” mechanism and others.
The Minister noted the need to promote those transport products that provide multi-level customer support to all market participants, thereby creating advantages for doing business in the Union.
The event was held with the participation of heads and representatives of transport departments from different countries of the world and international organizations.
