Rail Shipments Move to Electronic Format in Georgia

Rail shipments will be organized in electronic format and this is an unprecedented project in the region.

Georgian Railway has already introduced a joint electronic system cargo.railway.ge, where shipment documents and signature will be carried out in electronic format through authorization and ID cards.

The system enables authorized users to check their balance, control transfers, payments, charging cards and receive detailed information. 

Shipment price calculation is also available.It should be noted that Georgian Railway has worked on the system for 8 months and it came into force on July 15.

This is the first stage and similar services will refer to international shipments too. Negotiations are underway to introduce similar systems in Azerbaijan too. In this case TransCaspian corridor will be more flexible
