e-CMR Academy

The e-CMR Academy was launched at the beginning of April. This program is specially designed to enable organizations to apply e-CMR within a few hours, after setup.
Core users are trained in an online ‘Train-the-Trainer’ session to work with e-CMR. Keynotes:

  • Explanation about e-CMR and the changes in the process
  • Explanation e-CMR application and core functions within Collect + Go, e.g. data management of organizations, users and roles and the application of secure e-signing processes
  • Handling e-CMRs, the “happy flow”
  • Exceptions handling

After completing the Train-the-Trainer session, 5 online coaching sessions of 20 minutes are planned in the first week in which e-CMR is applied in the workplace. During these sessions, it is discussed how the implementation is progressing and where adjustments are needed.

The first shippers and carriers have now participated in the e-CMR Academy.

Freemium e-CMR Quooker

Quooker is the first to test Freemium eCMR

Two weeks ago Quooker started using Collect + Go via the Freemium model. This Freemium model has been developed together with Logistics Community Brabant to enable companies to get started with e-CMR in an accessible way.

Quooker has used the opportunity to implement this new way of working through the Train-the-Trainer program. This program is designed to train logistics professionals within 4 hours to apply e-CMR in the operation.

Interoperability e-CMR: shared signature process now available

Interoperability e-CMR: shared signature process now available

The Benelux authorities have given a positive advice for the use of the interoperability function of Collect + Go. With this function it is possible to process e-CMRs from other e-CMR providers.

The NIWO organisation (part of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management) reviewed Collect + Go’s software changes for interoperability against the applicable legislation and regulations for the e-CMR protocol. This audit has shown that the exchange of data is in line with the requirements for checks en route, application of secure signatures and information sharing. Based on this positive assessment, this function can therefore be applied within goods issue and receipt processes.

Collect + Go works together with other e-CMR providers within the open partnership Digi-Transit. Within this collaboration, the integration has been set up to share e-signing processes with each other. Truck drivers and warehouse workers who work with Collect + Go can sign the e-CMRs from other providers within their familiar process. Under the hood, the data is exchanged, so that ‘interoperable’ e-CMRs can be processed further. The signature of our users is therefore also valid for e-signing on other e-CMR platforms.

1, 2 or 3 signatures on e-CMR

With the launch of our winter release, the 1-2-3 architecture has been introduced to handle an e-CMR from someone else. Vrumona is the first to use this new feature. They have developed their own app for domestic transport. This app is used in retail and out of home.
In the retail scenario, the consignment note is signed by the driver in Bunnik. This is done within the Vrumona app.
Retailers can now securely sign this domestic consignment note with an advanced  signature on goods receipt via Collect + Go.
This advanced signature is then shared with Vrumona, thus completing the consignment note.

With this technological innovation it is now possible to handle a digital consignment note from someone else. With this innovation, Collect + Go is the first to be able to put 1, 2 or 3 signatures on a digital consignment note.
Work is currently being done on scenarios that make it possible to apply this interoperability with other e-CMR providers, so that this process can also be applied in cross border transport.

Sharing of authentications in e-CMR

There is a lot of paper hassle in logistics. 99% of all cross-border road transports are accompanied by paper waybills / CMRs, a legal requirement. The typical process is that waybills are printed out in the warehouses of shippers or carriers and handed over to truck drivers. Pionira and Collect + Go are both experts in digitizing this process. With their accreditation by the Benelux governments to create e-CMRs, they offer companies such as Vos Logistics, Stora Enso, Leen Bakker, Scheuten Glas, Molenbergnatie and Eutraco a digital solution compliant with e-CMR legislation.

One of the important barriers to implement the e-CMR process is the acceptance of digital signing processes by warehouse employees. Different e-CMR providers all use their own way of authenticating users within their signing processes. 5 e-CMR providers already work together on datasharing and interoperability in Digi-Transit (www.digi-transit.eu).

In the beginning of 2019, Pionira from Zeebrugge and Collect + Go from ‘s-Hertogenbosch took the initiative to set up this open partnership. To further implement this collaboration, they are now launching a blockchain solution to share ID authentications, making it easier for shippers and LSP’s to digitize their signing processes.

The essence is that a verification on one platform is shared with the other platform. For example, when a warehouse employee signs an incoming transaction within Pionira and an outgoing via Collect + Go, he can use the same authentication in signing. The warehouse employee only has to be registered once as a user within one of the respective platforms. The blockchain controls the rest via the “green tick”. Pionira and Collect + Go will work together in the coming months to make an initial setup via the blockchain (prototype). Once operational, this setup is shared with the other participants within Digi-Transit.

Hans Togtema (CEO Collect + Go): “Good use cases in blockchain are rare, I think we have one. By sharing our authentications in a smart way with other e-CMR providers, we make it easy for shippers and LSP’s to work on e-CMR. The investment in a digital signing process pays off immediately. “

Barry van Leuven (CEO Pionira): “We are committed to mutual cooperation in Digi-Transit. This fits very well in with dynamics in the European market. The mutual sharing of data with the government and between platforms in a uniform manner is essential. Interoperability is the way forward in this.
