Germany will start accepting electronic CMR (#eCMR) as of 5 April !!

The accession document was submitted to UNECE on 5 January and will enter into force 90 days later.

This is a huge step towards digitalisation of European supply chains. Looking only at cross-border transports there are some 150 - 200 million paper CMR documents used every year, making CMR the most common paper document in freight transport operations. With its wider digitalisation, transport stakeholders will benefit from better supply chain visibility, lowered operational (admin) costs and ultimatelly somewhat reducted environmental impact.
