CargoX at the EC-organized Digital Transport Days

Oct. 10, 2019, 11:44 a.m.

(Helsinki  – 7-9 October 2019) – CargoX participated in the high-level conference about transport and mobility held by the European Commission, where service integration, data exchange and reuse, and data safety were the hot topics under discussion. 

The Digital Transport Days 2019 conference was organized by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE), in cooperation with the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Violeta Bulc, European Commissioner for Transport was among keynote speakers. 

The conference focused primarily on enabling policies regulating data sharing, automation, and customer-oriented services, and on exploring the potential for reducing our environmental footprint.

The event cast a broad view on emerging digital solutions for the transport and mobility industry. Industry and service providers, experts, and public officials enjoyed exchanging experiences and discussing the latest developments in the field. Such fruitful conversations lead to new definitions and implementations of enabling policies, as well as to the development of customer-oriented services. 

This year the organizers pledged to help find answers to several questions about opportunities to share reusable data, the future of digital freight, transportation passenger’s expectations, the contribution of 5G, AI, IoT, big data, and blockchain innovations, societal impacts, and actual decarbonization effects of digitalization. 

New prototypes were featured from the EU supported projects (CEF, Horizon 2020, and more funding programmes), with the possibility to test new prototypes. 

“I'm extremely happy to have been able to join the Digital Transport Days organized by the European Commission. There is an apparent need for such events, as the technology implies that market participants build knowledge, but also mutual trust. The EU is very invested in blockchain initiatives, and we hope the trend continues. Educating users about the benefits of blockchain technology helps the EU become the market leader in this field. We firmly believe that the public blockchain will play an essential part in the global trade in the next few years, but there is no time to lose,” said Bojan Cekrlic, CTO of CargoX. 

Participants agreed that interoperability is what guarantees success in the future and that partners’ trust needs to be in place to enable reusable data sharing and boost innovation. 

“Blockchain technology can help build and maintain that trust,” Cekrlic adds.
