BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 20. Work is underway to
create a single digital ecosystem of TRACECA [Europe-Caucasus-Asia
transport corridor] member countries, Secretary General of the
Permanent Secretariat of the TRACECA Intergovernmental Commission
Asset Assavbayev said, Trend reports.
Assavbayev made the remark at a presentation dedicated to the
organization's initiatives and activities.
According to him, the ecosystem is planned to be built on the
basis of decisions which have already been made in Europe.
'The concept of digitalization contains specific recommendations
for the practical implementation of the digital ecosystem of the
TRACECA member countries,” the official noted.“Our digital
ecosystem will allow integrating the local systems of all
participating countries into a single system, and subsequently
we'll be able to exchange data not only with ports on the Caspian
Sea but also with ports on the Black Sea, as well as data on rail
and road transport.”
“To create this digital platform, we have already conducted the
relevant competitive procedures and identified an external
consultant,” Assavbayev also said.“A European company will act as
an external consultant, which, based on the decisions made in
Europe, will help us develop a digital ecosystem.”
Besides, according to him, TRACECA continues to work on the
implementation of containerization, digitalization initiatives, and
the development and creation of unified conditions for the
transportation of goods.
'The digitalization concept for 2022-2025 envisages such
initiatives as the implementation of pilot electronic queue
projects, the pilot application of eCRM [electronic customer
relationship management] between the participating countries,
the launch of the TRACECA information system and a mobile
application for carriers, the use of the CIM/SMGS electronic
consignment note, the introduction of intelligent cards, and single
transit/multilateral use of electronic permits,' Asavbayev
