eFTI Regulation: a proposal to be endorsed

UIRR supports the principle to oblige authorities to accept regulatory freight transport information in electronic format

The European Commission has published a proposal for a Regulation on electronic freight transport information (eFTI) on 17 May 2018 (https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/initiatives/ares-2017-2546864_en). The purpose of the envisaged legislation is to oblige authorities in Member States to accept freight transport-related regulatory information from businesses in yet to be defined electronic formats.

The proposal addresses an aspect of digitalisation in European freight logistics that promises productivity enhancements and a reduction of transmission errors. It promises also some benefits for the economy and the environment. The Intermodal sector therefore endorses the proposal in principle and is prepared to actively collaborate in the further development of the Regulation and, subsequently, the delegated acts defined in the Regulation.
