Automatic linking of eCMR at pickup and return of containers
That’s what we do with the Cargocard integration. More than 27,000 drivers are already in possession of the Cargocard issued by Secure Logistics. They need this card to pick up or return containers at/to the port. After (biometric) verification of their identity, they get access to the terminal premises for loading or unloading.
From that moment on, the renewed e-CMR flow starts. A number of additional checks are immediately performed in the background. After pick up or return of the container, the driver swipes his card on exit of the terminal or card reader at the counter at the customer. At that time, various signatures are placed on the e-CMR. The driver also immediately receives the e-CMRs by e-mail. This is necessary on inspection.
This new way of working was introduced in September at Combi Terminal Twente (CTT) in Hengelo.
Drivers who pass the gate after loading, automatically receive their e-CMR. When unloading, CTT’s customers sign for receipt within the Modality Truck app. Modality has expanded its system for this with a link to our e-CMR solution. This integration is also available for transporters that operate ZF Transics (TX Flex and Solo).
The use of the e-CMR is a good example of optimization and digitization within the supply chain and offers the following benefits:
- Extra security via identification of driver and company credentials
- Instant access to signed documents
- More efficiency and convenience for the driver
- Less risk of errors, delays and loss of documents
- Invoicing immediately after delivery
- A more sustainable solution compared to the paper version
