E-CMR to revolutionise domestic goods transport
With domestic trade accounting for most transport operations in Europe, the first national digital consignment notes have been launched in France and Spain – revolutionising transport operations at the national level.
Coordinated by IRU members the launch follows the successful deployment of the cross-border e-CMR last month. National consignment notes are used for 65% of the nearly 2 billion tonne-kilometres performed by European hauliers each year across Europe.
The national note enables transport operators to input information electronically, store logistics reports and exchange data in real time via a mobile phone or tablet. (ben)
