At the International Transport Forum in Leipzig, issues of increasing transport mobility were discussed

The discussion was held on May 22 in the framework of the thematic round table “Managing new mobility”. In his speech, the Deputy Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, Alexei Semenov, focused on the main tasks and challenges facing the transport industry in this area. As the Deputy Minister noted, vehicle sharing services should not only ensure the safety of their end users, but also of other road users. When using “sharing” services, it is necessary to level the risks of falsifying user accounts, to systematically counteract attempts to use false information. 

Particular attention should be paid to ensuring that transport services operators protect the accumulated data about their users. 

At the same time, the distribution of services of “sharing” mobility and transport sharing should serve the purpose of attracting users, first of all, personal automobile transport: car sharing and joint trips are still less efficient for organizing the transport system, yielding to passenger transport due to less efficient use of road space.

“With the development of individual means of mobility - hovercraft, electric scooters, and others, the speed of which can be dangerous for joint movement with pedestrians, the task of ensuring their safe use arises. Achieving this goal requires both adaptation of the infrastructure and regulation of the issues of operation of these vehicles in the rules of the road, ”noted Alexei Semenov.

At the plenary session "Improving global interconnections: the integration of transport, energy and telecommunications networks", held on May 23, the head of the Russian delegation spoke about the digitalization of the transport complex in our country. They also discussed the introduction of advanced technical and technological solutions in the industry based on digital technologies and global navigation satellite systems, including the Plato and ERA-GLONASS systems. The latter ensures the saving of human lives and the urgent provision of assistance to victims of accidents. 

The participants of the ministerial summit were acquainted with domestic achievements in the development and testing of autonomous vehicles of Russian production.

“A systematic approach is needed in creating a unified digital space of the transport complex on the basis of uniform standards and rules of interaction,” stressed the deputy head of the Ministry of Transport of Russia. In this regard, in order to achieve the best results, in accordance with the needs of the economy as a whole, as well as transport and economic operators, those present were informed about the creation of the Digital Transport and Logistics association in our country. The largest Russian transport companies with extensive practical experience in implementing “digital” transport projects, including in the field of creating barrier-free digital transport corridors, have become members of the association.

“I am sure that digital technologies will inevitably become the most important part of the global transport system and will be actively used on Eurasian transport routes,” concluded Alexei Semenov.


The Russian delegation also held a number of bilateral meetings at which it discussed the development of international road transport, and also made thematic reports on the issue of Eurasian transport integration.
