Qstep among several stakeholders to begin testing of e-CMR from Estonia to Poland
Posted by: Paanukoski Egor
27 August, 2020 might go down in history as a day when testing of e-CMR – an electronic version of the consignment note used under the CMR Convention when transporting goods by road – encompassing three Baltic states and Poland, has finally begun.
The digitization of the consignment note is a step towards a new business environment where information is shared electronically and in real-time with necessary authorities and businesses in multiple countries. This should, among other, make stoppage of trucks obsolete and only necessary if there are visible or physical deficiencies to a vehicle or trailer and if there are discrepancies in the data provided for digital inspection.
From Estonia the following public institutions take part in testing: the Tax and Customs Board, the Police and Border Guard Board, from private sector: Via 3L, Ospentos, MobiCarnet, Qstep logiciel and Digilogistika Keskus (Logixdigi).
Testing is part of the Diginno-Proto pilot project launched under the leadership of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications for Estonia. The results of this pilot will be made available to all interested parties.
