Finland paving the way for more digitalisation
The Finnish ministry of transport has presented a development plan to strengthen digitalisation in the logistics, transport and port sectors. The intention is to create new operating models by 2022 to enable a better flow of information accompanying goods within and between transport chains.
By 2025, the business models developed in Finland will also be used internationally. To achieve these aims, about 30 measures have been proposed. They include electronic consignment notes, location tracking for professional transport, sharing logistics information, standardisation of information, and experiments and pilot projects pertaining to transport chain automation.
The draft plan is now open for comment until 28 February 2018. (ben)
