Electronic Consignment Note UNSM (e-CMR)

 

 

Project Purpose

The project’s purpose is to develop and publish an international XML “Electronic Consignment Note” message (e-CMR) for international and national transportation of goods by road.

Project Scope

Additional protocol to the convention on the contract for the international carriage of goods by road (CMR) concerning the electronic consignment note has been entered into force on 5 June 2011. Protocol has been ratified by numerous countries of European Union thus allowing performing road carriage of goods by road on their territories with the use of electronic consignment note. Furthermore, the development of appropriate technical solutions has already started by different private companies. The project scope is to standardize and harmonise the electronic consignment note message to be exchanged between carrier, shipper and receiver of the goods. Such electronic message shall be considered as an electronic contract of carriage of goods by road in accordance with the provisions of the above-mentioned protocol. Furthermore, the implementation of standardised electronic consignment note message may facilitate further interactions with other modes of transport.
