The European Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, a €47.5 million Spanish scheme to support the digitalisation of freight transport services. The scheme will be funded through the Recovery and Resilience Facility ('RRF'), following the Commission’s positive assessment of the Spanish Recovery and Resilience Plan and its adoption by Council. The scheme will run until 31 December 2025. The purpose of the measure is to promote (i) the digitalisation and optimisation of logistics processes at ports and railway terminals, (ii) the implementation of technologies for the identification and traceability of rolling stock and intermodal transport units, and (iii) the overall optimisation of freight transport through data technologies, data governance and artificial intelligence. The scheme is open to all freight transport operators and terminal operators active in Spain. Under the scheme, the support will take the form of direct grants. The Commission assessed the measure under EU State aid rules, in particular Article 93 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union on transport coordination and the 2008 Commission Guidelines on State aid for railway undertakings. The Commission found that the scheme is necessary and proportionate to enhance transport coordination by ensuring a full-scale digital interoperability between the different freight transport networks, as well as among the individual entities involved in freight transport. Furthermore, the Commission found that the aid will have an 'incentive effect' as the beneficiaries would not carry out the investments without public support. The Commission therefore concluded that the measure will contribute to transport coordination, in line with the objectives of the Spanish Recovery and Resilience Plan, of the EU Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy and of the European Green Deal, without unduly distorting competition in the Single Market. On this basis, the Commission approved the scheme under EU State aid rules. The Commission assesses measures entailing State aid contained in the national recovery plans presented in the context of the RRF as a matter of priority and has provided guidance and support to Member States in the preparatory phases of the national plans, to facilitate the rapid deployment of the RRF. The non-confidential version of the decision will be made available under the case number SA.62987 in the State aid register on the Commission’s competition website once any confidentiality issues have been resolved
