The Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation will begin testing mechanisms for the use of navigation seals for traffic control on the territory of the EEU in accordance with the agreement signed by the heads of the EEU states in 2022, reports the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation.
The use of navigation seals as part of the experiment will ensure control over the transit through Russia of timber and wood products exported by road outside the EEU.
The regulatory and supervisory authorities of both countries will receive information on vehicles and cargo safety in the information systems of the National Authorised Seal Operator of the Russian Federation, Digital Platforms Development Center LLC, and the National Authorised Seal Operator of the Republic of Belarus RUE "Beltamozhservice". For these purposes, the information systems of Russia and Belarus have now been integrated.
"Creating a new transport and logistics infrastructure, sharing digital solutions is one of the priorities of cooperation within the EEU. The registration of cargo shipments using electronic transport documents and the technological seamlessness of procedures at borders will potentially increase the volume of transit through the EEU countries. Navigation seals, which have proved their worth in the transit of sanctioned goods, have great potential for expanding their areas of application. Last year, this decision made it possible to significantly speed up the procedure for handling ships in the port of Novorossiysk, and we hope that the EEU space will become a platform where all the undeniable advantages of the technology can be manifested," said Dmitry Bakanov, Deputy Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation.
Navigation seals will be put on the vehicles by the authorized operator of the Republic of Belarus (RUE “Beltamozhservice”). Then the sealed trucks will go through the territory of both countries to the point of exit from the territory of the Russian Federation - the Russian-Azerbaijani section of the state border, the Yarag-Kazmalyar automobile checkpoint and the Russian-Kazakhstan section of the state border, one of the checkpoints Mashtakovo, Bugristoye, Petukhovo. There, the seals will be deactivated and removed, and the vehicles with cargo will continue on their route.
On the Russian side, the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia, the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia, the Border Service of the Federal Security of Russia, the Federal Customs Service, the Federal Transport Supervision Service and the Federal Forestry Agency are involved in the experiment.
"The cargo tracking system is a hardware and software system for collecting, processing, transmitting and visualizing data obtained from navigation seals during transportation. The system makes it possible to provide regulatory authorities with all the necessary information about any transit shipment through the territory of Russia”, - said Artyom Popov, Deputy Director General of LLC "Digital Platforms Development Center".
