The Ministry of Transport of Russia launched an experiment to introduce an electronic bill of lading (ETR) and an electronic waybill (EPL) for passenger and freight transportation, it follows from the message of the department.

It will be held until October 30, 2020 in Moscow, Tatarstan, Moscow, Kaluga, Ryazan regions and the Krasnodar Territory, specified in the message.

The project will improve road safety through digitalization of pre-trip control of the technical condition of the vehicle and medical examination of the driver. At the same time, the transfer of almost 3 billion primary documents annually issued by carriers to the “digit” will reduce business costs, speed up and simplify the passage of control and oversight procedures.

To implement the experiment, an Interdepartmental working group will be created by February 28, including representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Federal Tax Service, Ministry of Transport, Rostransnadzor, Rosavtotrans, Digital Transport and Logistics Association (CTL).

The prototype of a unified state information system for collecting, processing and storing data from EPL and ETrN is developed by FSUE ZashchitaInfoTrans. As noted in the message of the Ministry of Transport, the experiment will be attended by, among others, Sovtransavto, Delovye Liny and other carriers that cooperate with major retailers such as Magnit, X5 Retail Group, as well as Miratorg and by others.

Also, as part of the experiment, Yandex.Taxi will provide proprietary technologies for remote pre-trip inspections of drivers.

The experiment will accelerate the launch of Superservice 22 “Paperless transport of passengers and goods” – a comprehensive electronic state service for the digital registration of the transportation process on the principles of “single window”. “It’s crucial for us to hone all procedures together with business, to make an open state platform for all commercial services. Next we will connect other modes of transport. This will ensure real multimodality and digital transformation of the entire sector of the country’s economy,” said Alexey Semenov, Deputy Minister of Transport of Russia, project management.
