The RACITS is developing an ‘Automated System for Coordination of Goods Traffic (AS CGT or System)’ to ensure the higher level of logistics services to be provided to cargo owners or customers. High efficiency of the System is based on the following elements:
Interactions of the System’s users is shown on the following scheme:
To ensure user-friendly and reliable online interactions, the System should include a sufficient set of interfaces to share information with data sources’ and recipients’ Automated Information Systems (AIS). Such a set of interfaces should include:
A set of interfaces for the System's interactions with users and information systems:
Requirements on System’s characteristics and functionalities include:
The AS CGT System shall interact with information systems of carriers and customs authorities to carry out all necessary operations on clearance, documentation and payments via these systems. It is expected that the System operator shall be a concentrator of payment transactions for all participants of supply chains. The AS CGT shall ensure the planning of multimodal transport & logistics chains according to the requests accepted and the contracts concluded, as well as monitoring of goods shipments. The recorded results of all major transport and logistics operations shall be available to authorized users.
Using synergy generated by its own capabilities interacted with capabilities of different other IAS, the System shall ensure the possibility to form a qualitatively new kind of digital service – the e-trading platform for freight multimodal transportation based on the cross-cutting technology of high-speed cargo deliveries both on domestic routes and on international transport corridors. The consolidation of the majority of freight transport participants in one trusted ecosystem, as well as reductions of time of deliveries and of logistics costs of transportation are expected to be the most important results of the creation and development of the System.
