European Union - Digital Transport and Logistics Forum (DTLF)

The DTLF is a group of experts that brings together stakeholders from different transport and logistics communities, from both the private and the public sector, with a view to build a common vision and road map for digital transport and logistics. The DTLF also contributes to identifying needs for measures at EU level and supporting their development and implementation where relevant.
The DTLF are working on the eFTI regulation, which is using MMT as the underlying reference data model.
The electronic freight transport information (eFTI) regulation has been approved by the EU and will enter into force in August 2024. It establishes a legal framework for road, rail, maritime and air transport operators to share information with enforcement authorities in an electronic format. This is a crucial step as it entails significant benefits for the EU road freight transport.
