26/09/2022Automatic 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 Please fill in the form below if you want to know more about. We will then send you an invitation for an online consultation. […]
14/01/2022For 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. Would you like to know more about the advantages and possibilities of the e-CMR in combination with biometric verification? Please fill out the contact form below. […]
17/09/2021e-CMR in Germany On September 17, 2021, the German parliament ratified the e-CMR protocol. This means that e-CMR can now also be used in Germany. Since Germany accounts for almost half of all cross-border transports, this greatly accelerates the adoption and application of e-CMR. In this article we share more details, including the latest status for ratifications. e-CMR can be applied in 31 countries now. Can I start right away? On Friday 17 September, the draft law was approved by the German Federal Council. The official approval and implementation in the German Bundestag is expected soon. This is a formality. Due to the upcoming Bundestag elections on Sunday 26 September, this official ratification may be slightly delayed. This does not alter the fact that the Bundestag decision paves the way for the official use of the digital consignment note in Germany. Thorough preparation and elaboration The Bundesministerium der Justiz und für Verbraucherschutz prepared the e-CMR legislation before it was submitted to the Bundestag (the German parliament). Based on the e-CMR protocol, a thorough analysis has been made of the legal articles and their interpretation for application by companies. Here you will find, for example, instructions for the application of a secure signature. This legislation has been coordinated with the federal states and employers’ organizations before submission. As a result, there is broad support and the e-CMR protocol can be applied nationally. Latest status e-CMR ratifications Below you will find a map with the latest status for e-CMR ratifications. The e-CMR protocol was ratified by 30 countries worldwide and can be applied throughout Europe and neighboring countries. Source: treaties UN […]
27/11/2019e-Signing for warehouse | Sharing of authentications within Digi-Transit 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.

14/10/2019Leen Bakker digitizes store distribution with Mercedes-Benz Truck App Portal and Collect + Go Store distribution Leen Bakker via Mercedes-Benz Truck App Portal and Collect + Go Jan Hamers (Logistics supervisor) had been looking forward to it for months: the delivery of the new Actros Mercedes trucks. These trucks are not only better for the environment, they are also ideal for handling driver tasks. One of these tasks is the handling of orders in store distribution. Mercedes ensures that Leen Bakker always leads the way with the best apps for their truck drivers. These apps are supplied as standard via the Mercedes-Benz app store, released earlier this year. Every new truck leaving the factory is now equipped with best in class apps for truck drivers. One of the apps now available for truck drivers is the Collect + Go app for handling e-CMR’s. As a result, Leen Bakker can now easily take the step to fully digitize store distribution. Orders are prepared as e-CMR for truck drivers from the WMS / TMS system. They sign their assigments in the truck on the Collect + Go app before they leave the distribution center in Raamsdonksveer. That is the only administrative act that they have to do! Jan Hamers: “This way of handling is perfect for us. Truck drivers have no administration anymore, that makes them happy. It also saves a lot of time in planning. Everything is digital and we have real-time insight into the status of the shipments. Collect + Go provides the certified e-CMR process in this. With the combination Mercedes Benz and Collect + Go we are sure that everything runs smoothly. In the coming months we will implement this new way of working within our branches. ” The new Actros Trucks: inside mirrors leads to 2% saving on fuel The new Actros trucks are equipped with new camera technology. With this camera technology the outside mirrors have been removed. These mirrors are now inside the truck. The improved aerodynamics of the truck leads to 2% less fuel consumption. In the video below you can see how these new mirrors perform. e-CMR de komende 5 jaar toe te passen in de gehele Benelux De verkeersministers van België, Luxemburg en Nederland hebben onlangs besloten de mogelijkheid om e-CMR toe… Nu beschikbaar voor meer dan 150.000 chauffeurs In samenwerking met Transics hebben we een geïntegreerde boordcomputer afhandeling voor de digitale vrachtbrief ontwikkeld.… iSHARE Inside iSHARE is een initiatief van de Topsector Logistiek.

07/09/2019QR for Warehouse Easily share e-CMR data QR for Warehouse was launched on 5 September 2019 at the Vos Logistics Expo customer day. More than 600 guests took a look into the distant future on this day. CEO Frank Verhoeven and CFO Ben Vos took the participants to the year 2040. Self-driving lorries powered by hydrogen were docking at the right place with shippers for a few years already. Full of surprise, people looked back on the year 2019, when paper was still the norm. Collect + Go launched the QR for Warehouse innovation on this day. With this innovation transporters and shippers are enabled to work paperless in an easy way. Vos Logistics hereby invites its customers to digitise the issuance processes and prepare them for e-CMR. In collaboration with Transics, a workflow has been defined for truckdrivers in which the delivery process of the shipper within QR for Warehouse fits in seamlessly with the administrative process of Vos Logistics and the driver’s work process. Not with all kinds of different apps and devices, but within the driver’s question path on his TX Flex. The driver is thus enabled to have his shipments signed off confidentially and safely by warehouse employees. This way of sharing data offers a number of important benefits for shippers and carriers.

15/06/2019e-CMR corridor Netherlans-Poland e-CMR Benelux: proeftuin voor e-FTI The Tilburg (Netherlands) – Rzepin (Poland) e-Joint Corridor was launched on June 13th: one digital delivery process for e-documents for road and train transport. This innovation is the result of a collaboration between Bostik, GVT, Essers, Collect + Go and Logistics Community Brabant (LCB). With this innovation this freight route becomes even more interesting for shippers and transporters. Research shows that digitization at the terminal in Tilburg can save one hour in time. If this process is also applied in Poland, the same time savings will be recorded there. For shippers it also pays off to participate. They save 10 minutes in the issuing process. The added value of digitizing and linking freight documents across modalities is huge. Traditionally, each individual transportation mode has its own paper freight document. For example, road transport uses the CMR where rail operators need a CIM. To be able to considerably scale up multimodal transport and apply it for large groups of shippers and transporters, it is necessary that the complexity of paperwork is reduced. Reducing paperwork is also good environmental practice. CO2 emissions are reduced when modal shift is made easier for participants. With the e-JointCorridor on the Tilburg-Rzepin route, the CMR’s of shipper Bostik are automatically digitized from their SAP system into e-CMRs. The data from the e-CMR’s is made available digitally on issuing for carrier GVT, thus enabling them to organise the road and rail transport from the Bostik factory in Oosterhout to the Raben warehouse facility in Poland. The rail terminals in Brabant and Rzepin receive the necessary information to create e-documents for rail and road transport in real time. The e-CMRs of the individual trucks, intended for the same train, connect seamlessly with the e-CIM. Also in Rzepin, GVT can already prepare the last piece of road transport to the recipient with the e-CMRs. The 24/7 digital availability of freight documents in every step in the chain that speeds up the flow of goods during loading, transfer and unloading. The first findings indicate a saving in lead time of up to 20%. Effectively, this means that a higher transport frequency can be achieved with the same means of transport. A 20% saving in lead times creates space for one extra train per week! This enormous productivity improvement leads to a further strengthening of the position of multimodal transport compared to traditional road transport. The e-JointCorridor is offered via the Collect + Go implementation model and platform, complies with all legislation and regulations (government certified) and is made interoperable with other e-CMR providers within the Digi-Transit partnership. The next step is scaling up the e-JointCorridor to other shippers and carriers within these and other freight routes.

14/06/2019Tipping point: more than 50% of European cross-border road transport is digital now Poland ratified the e-CMR protocol on 13 June. This is a tipping point in the EU market. From now on, based on GDP more than 50% of European cross-border road transport can be handled digitally. The European market for e-CMR is digitising at a rapid pace. With pilots in Germany and the UK, the time is here for shippers and carriers to digitise all paperwork. Benefits include: time savings for truck drivers and warehouse employees sharing of status messages when cargo is transferred and delivered invoicing of orders on signoff for receipt inspections on the fly no back office handling for LSP’s  in the happy flow Logistics service providers GVT, Essers and adhesives producer Bostik are the first to use this new digital option on the Tilburg-Rzepin e-Joint Corrridor.
