Despite the general economic crisis, the logistics sector is facing interesting times and big changes. Europe is rapidly moving towards cross-border digitization and an explosion of digital freight data is expected in 2024. In 2026, all EU countries must create the readiness to carry out supervision in transport based on digital waybills, but how do companies feel about it? Come and hear what experts from Digilogistics Center of Excellence (Digilogistika Keskus) and Tietoevry Create Baltic think about it.

On October 27th, 2023, the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) and a pan-European consortium signed a contract for 28.3 million euros, agreeing to fund the eFTI4EU project. The consortium consists of 22 partners, including 9 Member States (plus four Observers), with a unifying mission to pave the way for implementing electronic freight transport information (eFTI) architecture.
In Europe, we have already shown ourselves and received confirmation that we have done something right by being the first to start sharing eFTI digital cargo information between companies and national supervisory authorities. Now is the time to take the next goal, and the whole world could be suitable for that.
Together with Exponaut and several other Estonian companies, we are exploring under Modern Village accelerator this playground this week in Dubai, at the world’s largest technology and startup fair GITEX 2023.
