Digital Transport Corridor working meetings were organised by the EU4Digital Facility in Belarus, Ukraine and Lithuania on 25, 26 and 28 November. The aim of the meetings was to present and discuss the concept of a Digital Transport Corridor between the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea, the situation in the respective countries, as well as possible pilot activities. 

Representatives from railways, road transport associations, customs, related businesses, ministries and state agencies responsible for transport and information technology took part in the meetings and shared their practical insights, contributing to the discussions and representing their country’s position. 

The participating countries expressed their support for the idea of setting up a National eLogistics platform in each country that could be combined and integrated with similar platforms in other countries. 

Preliminary pilot cases were also discussed, with the digitalization of eLogistics documents receiving the greatest support.

Through its EU4Digital initiative, the European Union supports trade facilitation and harmonisation among Eastern Partner countries and with the EU, by promoting common frameworks for eCommerce, eCustoms and eLogistics, and working towards Digital Transport Corridors.
