Regulation on electronic freight transport information (eFTI),

On 29 January, the European Parliament’s Transport (TRAN) Committee adopted its report on the European Commission’s proposal for a Regulation on electronic freight transport information (eFTI), issued in May 2018 as part of the 3rd Mobility Package.


In order to speed up the uptake of electronic transport information, the Commission proposal   requires competent authorities to accept regulatory information in electronic form and set up a framework of certified electronic freight transport information platforms and service providers (by conformity assessment bodies). 

The TRAN report is expected to be adopted in Plenary in March, with the aim to enter into the trilogue negotiations with the Council and the Commission. In view of this, it is expected that the legislative framework will be adopted in the beginning of 2020. The preparatory work on the underlying implementing and delegated acts will nonetheless already start in 2019 and CLECAT will ensure to contribute to this.  CLECAT is pleased with the TRAN report as it takes quite of few of CLECAT concerns and demands on board.
