01 March 2021
Short description

This report covers the results of a pilot project in the implementation of: (a) the recommendations of the 2019 and 2020 Odessa trade facilitation seminars of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) to support the development of digital multimodal transport corridors to increase the harmonization and standardization of data exchange in international transport, trade and logistics to encourage electronic data exchange and thereby to reduce person-to-person contacts during the COVID-19 crisis and in the post-pandemic recovery, using relevant standards of the United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT), a subsidiary body of the UNECE.

The aim is to foster the harmonization of electronic data sharing using global (UN/CEFACT) standards for transport, trade and logistics, and to prepare standards for e-documents based on the UN/CEFACT semantic standards and reference data models. The focus will be on the development of electronic document equivalents for the documents mentioned above, using UN/CEFACT tools in the countries developing a digital multimodal transport corridor.
