Sweden confirmed its commitment to move towards fully paperless freight by acceding to the e-CMR protocol this week.  

In place since 2011, the digital version of the United Nations Convention for the carriage of goods (e-CMR) comprises 25 countries today – a strong representation all across Eurasia that results from lobbying efforts by IRU and its members.

Sweden’s accession to e-CMR enables the country’s logistics companies to enjoy the many benefits of this digital tool: 

Lower costs

  • Handling costs can be up to three to four times less expensive
  • Faster administration with reduced data entry, no paper handling, no fax/scan/letter exchanges, no paper archiving
  • Faster invoicing
  • Reduction of delivery and reception discrepancies

Greater transparency

  • Data accuracy
  • Control and monitoring of the shipment
  • Real-time access to the information and proof of pick-up and delivery

With most of Sweden’s neighbouring countries already using e-CMR, all eyes are now on Germany as the next contracting party, so that European transport operators, drivers and shipment companies all benefit from faster, more secure and more transparent trade.
