The project eFTI4EU wis a CEF-Transport co-funded project of 28 million € with 9 Member States. It will allow Member States to join forces, to face the upcoming eFTI requirements, and work jointly on common specifications and take advantage of a well harmonized European wide eFTI exchange environment according to the Regulation EU No 2020/1056 on electronic Freight Transport Information (eFTI Regulation). EFTI4EU project will support the process of implementation of the eFTI Regulation in digitalizing freight transport and logistics by contributing to the implementation of a seamless paperless information exchange between businesses and authorities and developing systems/IT platforms to be used by the competent authorities to access and process information electronically on a non-discriminatory basis and in accordance with Regulation EU 2020/1056 on electronic Freight Transport Information (eFTI).
The overall objectives of the Project are fully aligned with the aim of eFTI Regulation EU No 2020/1056, namely:
