e-CMR: Manage your waybills digitally
A CMR (Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road) is a document used for the regulation of road freight transport and serves as an international agreement. CMR allows a customer to define how they communicate with the company, what services or products they will purchase, and how they will pay for them.
The CMR Convention is a treaty between European countries and some countries outside of Europe on the legal rules regarding the carriage of goods by road.
The e-CMR stands for 'digitizing at the source': As soon as cargo has been delivered, it is digitally 'signed off' on, and the proof of delivery becomes available to every stakeholder.
The electronic CMR, or e-CMR, enables transport companies to eliminate paperwork and increase efficiency. Handling your consignment notes digitally means no more hassle with scanning and manually copying data, no delays because of administrative processes, no incorrect, missing or illegible data, and no more paperwork to deal with in the trucks.
At Trimble Transportation, we aim to digitize your processes. Transport companies that invest in digitalization can often immediately reap the benefits.
How it works
The consignor creates the digital consignment note on the e-CMR platform, after which it is sent from the TMS to the Trimble onboard computer. The driver receives his job order and can perform all necessary actions, such as having the e-CMR signed digitally there.
The signed bill of lading then automatically becomes available to all parties involved in the supply chain, including your office workers.
A no-brainer for modern transport companies
The e-CMR offers transport companies a wonderful opportunity to digitize yet another process. Implementing it is a no-brainer, something every modern transport company should consider.
