Digital logistics

Border queue management introduced in2011

Estonia is applying its world-class IT and engineering expertise to revolutionise supply chain efficiency and client experience from the first mile to last.

Estonia has a sizeable logistics industry thanks to a strategic location which makes it an effective supply chain hub for the Nordic and Baltic regions. The industry has applied IT extensively for 20 years, from early automation of goods and documents to modern day application of advanced robotics and data analytics.

Active collaboration with government has seen the joint development of numerous digital logistics enablers. Estonia’s e-border solution has been adopted by neighbouring countries and attracted OECD awards for improving trade and tourism. Country Single Window and e-Customs solutions provide streamlined permissions and reporting. Estonia sets the standard for cross-border data exchange in Europe today.

Estonia also benefits from digitally enabled infrastructure including smart ports, roads and cities. Real-time data from these connected networks, available on enterprise systems and mobile apps, ensure traffic flows smoothly and environmental impact is minimised.

By combining a pro-business environment ideal for R&D with world-class skills in IT and engineering, Estonia has produced numerous digital logistics innovations. Starship Technologies‘ autonomous delivery robots have received strategic investment from Daimler AG; Cleveron parcel delivery solutions are adopted globally by Walmart, ASDA and Inditex; Tpilet smart ticketing has been acquired by Norges Statsbaner.

As rapid advances in analytics, A.I. and robotics further transform supply chain management, Estonia’s proof of concept and industry crossovers place it at the cutting edge of digital logistics developments.
