Our purpose for being


The future of freight transport is digital, and at eFTI4EU (Electronic Freight Transport Information for the European Union), we’re leading the way! We want to make freight transport and logistics across Europe more seamless, efficient, and cost-effective by implementing the eFTI Regulation (Regulation EU No 2020/1056 on electronic Freight Transport Information).

eFTI4EU’s mission is to encourage Member States to work together to develop a well-harmonised and interoperable European-wide eFTI exchange environment.

Our achievements


  • Encourage digitalisation in freight transport and logistics.
  • Reduce administrative expenses while enhancing the control capabilities of Competent Authorities.
  • Enhance efficiency and sustainability of transport.

The goals of eFTI4EU are in line with the objective of eFTI Regulation

We’re committed to ensuring that the eFTI Regulation benefits everyone.

Our daily routine


The eFTI activities and pilots focus on delivering national and regional eFTI roadmaps, fostering harmonisation of eFTI development and ensuring interoperability among Member States, conducting communication and dissemination activities, and developing and piloting an eFTI Gate.

The eFTI activities and pilots are working to make it easier for businesses to move goods across borders by creating a more seamless and efficient system for exchanging freight information. This includes developing and providing national and regional eFTI roadmaps, ensuring that eFTI is developed and integrated consistently across Member States, and testing the eFTI Gate in real-world conditions to ensure it is ready for deployment.
