Greece goes paperless with e-CMR

26 Oct 2023 · Prosperity

Following joint IRU-Hellenic Federation of Road Transport (OFAE) advocacy and e-CMR trials, the Greek government has joined the e-CMR Protocol.     

Demonstrating its commitment to fully paperless goods transport, Greece has become the 35th country to accede to the digital version of the United Nations Convention for the carriage of goods (CMR).

By eliminating paperwork, e-CMR lowers handling costs, eliminates administrative and invoicing delays, and reduces discrepancies at delivery sites. 

e-CMR also enhances transparency and security across the entire logistics chain, providing more accurate data to trace shipments with real-time access to pick-up and delivery information. As e-CMR is digital, transport companies can easily integrate it with other services.

The e-CMR standard will enable the Greek logistics sector to offer even more efficient services to its clients, both domestically and internationally.
