Dmitry Chernyshenko at the plenary discussion “Transport of Russia – 2035. From strategy to implementation”

From January 1, 2022, freight carriers will be able to issue electronic waybills through the public services portal. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko during his speech at the plenary discussion “Transport of Russia – 2035. From strategy to implementation”, which took place within the framework of Transport Week – 2021.

The discussion was also attended by First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov, Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin, Presidential Aide Igor Levitin and Minister of Transport Vitaly Savelyev.

Dmitry Chernyshenko noted that the transport industry is the most actively involved in the digital transformation process. On behalf of President Vladimir Putin, the Ministry of Transport was one of the first to develop a specialized strategy for digital transformation.

“Now 80% of companies in the transport industry in Russia are consciously introducing new business models based on digital technologies. More than half of transport and logistics enterprises are implementing their own digital transformation strategies. This increases the efficiency of their work. Also, in transport, automated fare collection systems are being introduced using biometric technologies. Face Pay is already operating in the Moscow Metro, and we will expand and scale this experience. By 2030, at least 80% of passengers will use it. As a result of digitalization, transport is already becoming more convenient for all users, ”said Dmitry Chernyshenko.

He added that as part of the implementation of 42 strategic initiatives approved by the Government, an electronic document management system is also being introduced in the transport industry.

“Next year, a new super service will be launched on the portal of state services -“ Paperless transportation of passengers and goods ”. Starting from January 1, all freight carriers will be able to issue electronic waybills, waybills with data from pre- and post-trip inspection of drivers and special permits for the carriage of goods. This will ensure the legal value of the data for exchange with government departments and reduce the costs of the paper system, ”added the Deputy Prime Minister.

An intelligent transport system is also being created in Russia. Smart traffic lights have already become an indispensable part of the infrastructure of urban digital services – almost 3 thousand of them have been installed in Moscow alone – and smart city lighting poles.

“They are equipped with an industrial switch, a video camera, a motion sensor, a Wi-Fi access point, a base station for communication networks and other telecommunication equipment. We are also working on the creation of communication infrastructure along highways and in remote sparsely populated areas. Operators have already assessed the coverage of the routes with communication services. Based on the results of the analysis, a plan for the construction of additional infrastructure will be adopted. This year, an uninterrupted signal will be installed on three pilot federal highways. All this makes it possible to improve road traffic and increase the safety of people, ”said the Deputy Prime Minister.

In his speech, Dmitry Chernyshenko also focused on the training of highly qualified personnel for the industry with digital competencies. There are 17 transport universities in Russia, including the Russian University of Transport, which this year won the Priority-2030 program. The university is implementing five strategic projects, four of which are related to digital technologies.

Within the framework of the discussion, the question was raised about the transport accessibility of tourist facilities. As Dmitry Chernyshenko noted, during the construction of resorts, hotels and sanatoriums within the framework of the new national project “Tourism and Hospitality Industry”, as well as other national programs, a transport infrastructure will be created in parallel. This will not only increase the attractiveness of travel within the country, but also reduce their cost.
