Digilogistics 2017 introduced ‘MobiCarnet’ for digital management of transport documents
A new solution for the digital management of transport documents was introduced in Helsinki on January 19th. The MobiCarnet solution family will be launched as the outcome of an Estonian-Finnish cooperation project in the fall of 2017. The seminar gathered an audience of over 100 decision-makers and experts within the transport sector.
MobiCarnet is a tool for electronic information exchange between the parties of the transport process and the officials, implementing the so-called Single Window principle. The MobiCarnet system can process telemetric information of the vehicle. Other systems such as Fleet Management services can connect to MobiCarnet.
The Finnish Minister of Transport and Communications, Anne Berner stated in her seminar speech that the Ministry is in favor of information technology development projects that enhance self-monitoring.
– It is excellent that sector organizations aim to improve safety and create new digital solutions. Moving forward, we may see various new forms of cooperation. We should be open-minded and ensure a legislation that doesn’t prevent such developments.
While the Estonian ERAA is in charge of designing the MobiCarnet platform tool, the Finnish SKAL Kustannus Oy will produce the MobiADR and MobiFootprint applications. MobiFootprint is for calculating CO2 emissions of a transport automatically and accurate, in real time. In ADR transports, MobiADR instructs the driver in vehicle loading, labeling and safety precautions, among other things.
The solutions were presented by Director Lauri Lusti, ERAA and Managing Director Iiro Lehtonen, SKAL Kustannus Oy.
