Mr. Evgeny Charkin, Deputy General Director of OJSC RZD
The Working Group on Information Technology Development (CCTT WG ITD) was established following the 19th Plenary Meeting of the “Coordination Council on Trans-Siberian Transportation” International Association (CCTT), which took place on September 30, 2010 in Bratislava (Slovakia) to solve development of a conceptual scheme of information interaction and unified technical rules for the exchange of electronic data on the Trans-Siberian Railway, as well as in the framework of the Electronic Train project.
The main tasks of the CCTT WG ITD are:
Development of proposals for the organization of the transportation of "electronic" freight trains on pilot routes with fixed train paths.
Promotion for the introduction of electronic legally significant document flow using electronic digital signature within the common space of the Trans-Siberian route, taking into account the national legal databases of transport participants, as well as the rules for the exchange of electronic documents
On regular workshops held by the CCTT WG ITD, issues related to the development and implementation of information technologies to improve the competitiveness of rail transport on the Trans-Siberian route are reviewed and solved.
As part of the annually CCTT Plenary Meetings, the updated work plan and composition of the CCTT ITD are approved.
By the efforts of the CCTT WG ITD members implement technical solutions to ensure the mutual recognition of the electronic digital signature (EDS) of different jurisdictions. Technological issues of the application of this scheme in international transport are partially provided in the framework of the development of technology of electronic preliminary information of the customs bodies of the Customs Union.
Within the framework of the CCTT “Electronic train” project, railway and operator companies - members of the CCTT are working in the following areas:
• introduction of electronic legally significant documents into the technological processes of rail transportation and ensuring mutual recognition of EDS of different jurisdictions;
• development and implementation of electronic cargo protection technologies;
the use of "electronic seals" and the introduction of GLONASS technologies on pilot container trains going from China to Europe.
Issues of electronic interaction between Russian Railways and the Federal Customs Service of Russia in the course of customs procedures for international rail transport are resolved on-line.
Organization of information interaction "road-port" and "port-road" The main prerequisites for the organization of information interaction “road-port” and “port-road” between Russian Railways and sea terminal operators are improving the quality of planning, eliminating unproductive losses, abandoned wagons on public roads and misuse of infrastructure.
At present, within the framework of the CCTT WG ITD, issues related to the organization of information interaction between JSC Russian Railways and operators of container terminals at Vostochny seaports, Novorossiysk and Ust-Luga are being considered and solved.
According to the results of the meeting held at the CCTT Secretariat on February 14, 2017, a pilot project was determined on organizing information interaction between Russian Railways and container terminal operators of the Vostochny seaports, Novorossiysk and Ust-Luga.
Joint meeting of JSC Russian Railways and PJSC NCSP was held in Novorossiysk on March 21, 2017 to determine the list of data for electronic interaction, to prepare a detailed project implementation plan.
Joint meeting of JSC Russian Railways and PJSC NCSP was held in Rostov-on-Don on June 21, 2017 to agree on a detailed project implementation plan, a Concept for the development of information exchange between Novorossiysk Sea Trade Port PJSC and the North Caucasus Railway, Agreement on electronic data exchange between Russian Railways and PJSC NCSP.
Working meeting of CCTT was held in Narvik (Norway) on June 28-29, 2017 concerning the interaction of railways and seaports and on the establishment of business cooperation in the field of multimodal transport in Asia-Europe traffic
Regular meeting of the Board of Directors of JSC “Mortsentr TEK” was held in Moscow on September 20, 2018, where, with the participation of representatives of the CCTT, the following issue was considered: “New information technologies aimed at improving the interaction between Russian Railways and seaport operators”.
Meeting was held in Vladivostok from 24 to 26 April 2018, a on the issue of information interaction between Russian Railways and Far Eastern seaports.
The introduction of new information systems:
In order to ensure guaranteed delivery of goods "just in time", increase the level of customer-oriented railway services and attract additional volumes of goods (e-commerce goods, in particular), STC TRANSISTEMOTEHNIKA LLC has developed a software product "Automated system for developing timetables for accelerated route container trains.
Measures are also being taken to form a single information space, to introduce electronic document management using electronic signatures within a single space of the Trans-Siberian route. Issues related to the creation of the CCTT integrated Internet platform are being actively worked out.
The Department of Information Technologies of Russian Railways held a meeting of the first session of experts on the creation of the CCTT single integrated Internet platform for Euro-Asian transport on January 26, 2017.
