e-CMR certification ISO27001:2017

Data protection eCMR ISO27001: 2017

On June 16, KIWA awarded the ISO27001:2017 certificate to Collect + Go. This allows our customers to always rely on the highest standards in business operations and information security.

Highlights:   

  • guaranteeing secure information facilities;
  • protecting critical processes;
  • protecting and correctly processing personal data;
  • responding adequately to incidents;
  • achieving information security awareness among employees and other stakeholders;
  • integrating information security & privacy into daily practice;

In addition to this certification, the Collect + Go platform is also certified for the e-CMR protocol.

e-CMR HUB: data exchange between e-CMR providers

e-CMR providers Cargoledger, Collect + Go, Logistiek Zonder Papier and Pionira are working together on a generic open API structure to handle each other’s e-CMRs. They do this with the e-CMR HUB within I4TRUST.
By adding Fiware and iSHARE technology in the mutual cooperation, we make it possible to recognize and further process each other’s transactions. A user within one platform can then sign an e-CMR on the other platform.

In addition to this function, an inspection process is also being worked on. Consortium member 51BIZ from Luxembourg shares knowledge in the field of inspection by public authorities.   

On May 12, we presented this setup to the Benelux governments and other e-CMR providers within the e-CMR Benelux working group. There, this initiative was positively received. It was also suggested that this initiative be given a place within Basic Data Infrastructure (BDI), an initiative within Rijkswaterstaat.

Funding is made available from the EU to develop and integrate these compatibility functions into the solutions of the participating consortium members.

electronic consignment note OR E-cmr can be applied in Germany as of todaY. A number of our customers immediately put their money where their mouth is by activating eCMR for logistics flows from Germany to the Netherlands and vice versa. Germany accounts for 50% of all cross border road transportation in the EU. The adoption of the digital consignment note is now raised to above 90% on all cross border road transports.   

Thorough preparation for introduction of digital consignment note

It is expected that this new way of working can be introduced silently. The German federal states were involved prior to the ratification of the e-CMR legislation. After ratification on September 17, 2021 by the German parliament, the government has taken the time to work out the implementation.

eCMR now available in 31 countries

The digital consignment note can now be used in 31 countries. On the map below you will find an overview of the countries in and around Europe where you can work with electronic waybills.

This item about e-CMR in RTL Transportwereld shows how e-CMR works in practice.

Math Heetkamp (logistics manager) is enthusiastic about the advantages of e-CMR and explains how Scheuten Glass benefits from this in the logistics operation.

Hans Togtema (CEO Collect + Go) shares how e-CMR HUB works in practice and how the exchange of data between e-CMR providers is organized. Thus enabling a process where truck drivers do not need all kinds of different apps for their administration.

e-CMR HUB

e-CMR HUB

e-CMR HUB. That is the name of the dataspace where e-CMR providers can exchange data to handle each other’s e-CMRs. Collect + Go, Cargoledger, Logistiek Zonder Papier and Pionira work together in this dataspace on e-CMR compatibility. Our goal is to make APIs available that make it possible to sign off each other’s e-CMRs.

In practice, we are already doing this with Pionira. A major Belgian brewer issues e-CMRs on Pionira’s Xynaps platform. Drivers process these e-CMRs further with Collect + Go in their familiar Transics workflow.
We are now developing this platform-to-platform integration into a generic function within the Data Innovation Hub ‘Smart Connected Supplier Network‘ in Eindhoven.

Funds from the European Union have been made available to the e-CMR HUB Consortium to develop two generic components:
– e-CMR Transaction clearance service. This API will ensure that e-CMR providers can sign transactions with each other.
– e-CMR Inspection service. With this API we provide a common access point for on-the-go checks.

This initiative is supported by the I4TRUST organization. They provide the tools and resources for effective and confidential data exchange (including Fiware, iSHARE, Fundingbox).

For cross-border transport of containers, it is required to carry a consignment not or CMR waybill. This consignment note must be present at all times with the shipment. During transport, this document can be transferred, checked or edited at various times (see picture below).

For a number of years it has been possible to replace the paper version with e-CMR, the digital equivalent of the CMR. The Benelux authorities have certified various parties to digitize the waybill process. These parties thus comply with all legal requirements as set out in the e-CMR protocol. e-CMR can now be used in 31 countries. Since the use of e-CMR will also be permitted in Germany from April 2022, the map for e-CMR is almost completely green in Europe.

Output

The e-CMR has now been put into use in a number of places. As a result, concrete and measurable results are available, including – but not limited to – the following:

Reduction of transaction costs
Thousands of lorries pick up and return containers at the terminals every day. It is estimated that the total transaction costs of the paper CMR are on average € 4.50 per transaction. By applying the E-CMR, these transaction costs within the chain are reduced by 90%. Transporters, terminals and shipping companies see returns increase due to faster transaction processing.

Availability of information
The transport sector is attractive for serious crime such as human and drug smuggling or theft of valuable goods. Digital availability of information ensures that the government’s insight into the logistics process is increased. The benefits of this include:

  • Limiting damage through early identification of various forms of fraud
  • Exception check is possible
  • The control process can partly take place outside the terminal

Next step

Thanks to the digitization of the consignment note, there are opportunities for further innovation to improve the logistics process. Partnerships can solve specific challenges, such as data distribution in the chain. Instead of making all information available to all parties involved, it offers opportunities to share relevant information in a fully targeted manner. This benefits efficiency but above all safety.

Pin codes with which containers are released are known in many places in the chain. Smart solutions between information systems can make this a lot safer. Think of a link between the driver card from the on-board computer, the aforementioned system and the access management system, whereby the driver does not have to enter the pin code, but can pick up ‘his’ container through biometric verification.
