What is a road consignment note (CMR)?

This is an international consignment note, which is used for the implementation of international trade and, accordingly, is the main and mandatory document for the implementation of international transportation.

A road consignment note is a transport document confirming the existence of an agreement between the carrier and the sender for the road carriage of goods.

For international road transportation, this document must contain the following information:

  •  date of shipment;
  •  name of the cargo to be transported;
  •  name and address of the carrier;
  •  name of the recipient;
  •  estimated delivery time;
  •  the cost of transportation;

The CMR consignment is issued in three copies: the first copy is handed over to the sender, the second is attached to the goods, the third remains with the carrier.
