The purpose of the the eFTI platform and data exchange service development project is to ensure the digitisation of the data used in freight transport and thus increase the efficiency of processes. The planned eFTI platform and the data exchange service will meet as a minimum the functional requirements of Regulation 2020/1056 of the European Parliament for eFTI environments, and all other clarifications related to said Regulation or local regulations imposed by Estonia.
The introduction of the platform will make it possible to dispense with the paper documents and the manual data processing that are predominantly used today. The processing of paper documents leads to a time-consuming transmission of information, which in turn leads to inefficiencies in the entire chain: goods movement planning, invoicing, and payments. eFTI platform enables the Customers, Consignors and Carriers to create, sign, modify and forward, and for authorised National Authorities to view electronic freight transport documents.
Private sector companies will be able to use the platform and the data exchange service based on licence or transaction fees, while authorised public authorities will be able to make information requests free of charge during the period of the service.
