The first DTLF plenary meeting of the new mandate is planned in Brussels on 15th of January 2019. More information and details on ERTICO involvement and implications for AEOLIX will follow soon.

Background

At the beginning of April 2015 the European Commission published a Decision to set up the Digital Transport and Logistics Forum (DTLF) which will assist the Commission in the exchange of electronic information in the field of transport and logistics. The DTLF is a group of experts that brings together stakeholders from different transport and logistics communities, from both the private and the public sector, with a view to build a common vision and road map for digital transport and logistics. The DTLF also contributes to identifying needs for measures at EU level and supporting their development and implementation where relevant.
