Futurists have estimated that self-driving cars will fill the roads by 2033, something that seemed like an impossible fantasy only a few years ago. Initial projects to launch autonomous taxis are already underway in Russia, with further plans for long-haul freight transportation, maritime navigation, and passenger rail transport. At the same time, the digital transformation has made its presence felt across passenger and freight logistics, from workflow to the possibility of ordering deliveries and booking trips in a single click. Active development in these areas is being supported through projects led by the Russian Ministry of Transport and top companies, as part of a broader strategy to transform the entire transport industry, from quick wins to the pursuit of long-term national goals. Which strategic areas of development in Russia’s transport sector will transform logistics in 2021, and what will the picture look like in 2024 and even 2030? What are the projects that will elevate Russia to a position of global leadership in the introduction of cutting-edge technologies to all modes of transport? When will passenger journeys and freight deliveries become completely seamless? Is it possible to make the leap from experiments in road freight transportation to the expansion of electronic workflow into all modes of transport by the end of 2021?
