Three keynote speakers: CEO of Fintraffic Pia Julin; Marjut Linnajärvi – VP Sales & Railway Operations in Nurminen Logistics and Technical Director of UIRR Eric Feyen guided the audience to the world of digital logistics.

After the keynotes, authorities from Finland, Estonia and Sweden introduced their plans and actions related to data sharing in logistics and especially on eFTI and new eFTI4EU project.

This time the seminar had honor also to include the EU perspective, as Lia Potec the Policy officer from the European Commission participated also in the seminar and introduced the eFTI regulation work and its status at the EU level.

Following the authority view, the focus was shifted to companies and five company representatives introduced their current actions and developments.

From the organizer point of view, we want to thank all participants and our speakers, without whom organizing the event would not have been possible. At the same time we would like to inform you that now the DigiLog event has been organized two times and that there can’t be two without the third, so a new DigiLog is already planned. So be tuned.

Special thanks also to LIMOWA, which helped organizers during the preparations and also worked as sponsor for the event.
