With the aim to promote the digitization of cargo documents and data circulation and to develop the automation of port and logistics processes, an integrated shared platform is being created under the leadership of the Freeport of Riga Authority.
he project aims to provide multimodal cargo services for sea and land freight, including data exchange with existing information systems of national importance.
The implementation of the project will significantly improve the speed of multimodal cargo circulation, reduce the administrative burden and impact on the environment.
The project “Digital transformation of port management, improving the processing and analysis of transport and logistics data” is being implemented under the 2nd component “Digital transformation” of the European Union Recovery and Resilience plan within the framework of the reform and investment direction 2.1 “Digital transformation of public administration, including local governments”.
The project implementation financing is 3.2 million EUR, while its maintenance and future development will be provided by the ports.
We are working on the digital transformation of port processes in order to introduce the principles of the smart port into everyday life by integrating several information systems that make the port a multimodal transport hub and allow information to move faster than actual cargo carriers
Viesturs Zeps, Chairman of the Freeport of Riga Board, said.
