In June, Norway ratified the e-CMR protocol. In place since 2011, e-CMR, the electronic protocol of the standard consignment note under the United Nations Convention for the carriage of goods, will help Norway’s goods transport and logistics sector move to full digitalisation for domestic and international operations. The move is set to boost efficiency and, notably in the current pandemic, reduce physical contact between transport workers and clients, and reduce costs for transport companies.
Using systems based on the e-CMR protocol brings a range of additional benefits for transport companies:
– Handling costs up to four times lower
– Faster administration with reduced data entry, no paper handling, no fax/scan/letter exchanges, and no paper archiving
– Faster invoicing
– Reduction of delivery and reception discrepancies
