Modern Technology for Humanity: Building a Responsible Future

There is no person or business that doesn’t rely on transport. Modern transportation and logistics must meet user demands as they stand today and ensure personal mobility in an age when it’s possible to cross the country in no time and send goods between your cities of choice. Technology means that people living in remote regions can receive the same content and quality of services as those living in megacities. In these conditions, our main task is to make the most of domestic digital transport solutions in order to continue to fulfil the objectives laid out in the Transport Strategy of Russia until 2030. One of these goals is to increase connectivity between Russia's regions: it shouldn’t take more than 12 hours to go door to door between any two major cities. It’s a task that can only be accomplished if business and the state work together. What state and business projects will be able to ensure equal access to digital services as well as logistical services? Is it possible to eliminate transportation inequality in the largest country in the world and to do it quickly? What is more important for logistics – infrastructure or digitalization? How satisfactorily will domestic solutions be able to replace Western solutions and where are the bottlenecks in digital import substitution in transportation?
