Three quarters of imported containers processed electronically in Russia’s Far East
Within the framework of the INTERTRAN project, more than 2,500 electronic waybills amounting to 74% of the total were issued for the transportation of imported cargo in containers from the Asia-Pacific countries in 79 directions in July 2020, including towards Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Novosibirsk.
Since the beginning of 2020, more than 11,400 electronic documents have been issued. Their average monthly number has increased sevenfold compared to 2019.
The INTERTRAN service has reduced the time needed to process transit declarations and freight documents by more than two days and the total time from the arrival of an import container at the port to departure from the railway station by four days.
INTERTRAN’s new processing and technology build on the existing regulatory framework and includes paperless processing of up to 30 transactions.
All container terminals and ports in Russia’s Far East are currently participating in the project.
