Cross-border x-trans.eu solution

Transporting heavy and oversize-load transports across borders represent a very serious challenge for people, materials, and logistics. X-trans.eu was a cross-border pilot project between Bavaria and Upper Austria with the aim of developing a faster procedure for the application and approval of cross-border large-capacity transports.

Summary 

X-trans.eu was a cross-border pilot project between Bavaria and Upper Austria with the aim of developing a faster procedure for the application and approval of cross-border large-capacity transports. Due to the different application forms and procedures for obtaining heavy goods transport permits in different countries, the aim of the pilot project was to create a central system that would save companies from submitting multiple applications for the same transport to different local authorities. The central approval portal x-trans.eu enabled the applicants to make their data available only once for the respective transport. The information collected was then forwarded to the appropriate authorities in each country, based on the application requirements in each country. The portal was based on a common data model that contained all the information required for approval. Rules could then be formulated to describe the information and application formats required in the individual countries. This made the system completely scalable for every European country. During the pilot phase, the data exchange between Austria and Germany was successfully tested. However, due to organisational and political changes, the project was terminated in 2015.
