The Government of Oman has ratified its accession to the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Good by Road (CMR) and the Additional Protocol on the Electronic Consignment Note (e-CMR). This marks a significant step forward for Oman’s digital transport and logistics systems. e-CMR will increase the efficiency of Oman’s logistics supply chain, allowing a more secure and streamlined flow of goods.
CMR is a UNECE convention regulating Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road, and is supported by the CMR document, which is the most frequently used transport document in cross-border road freight transport in Europe and large parts of EurAsia. It is estimated that approximately 140-200 million CMR documents are used for cross-border transports in EU. While widely used, CMR like any other paper-based document leads to inefficiencies in logistics chains. By starting to use electronic version of the document authorities and logistics industry will remove inaccuracies, delays in for example invoicing and will reduce need to use paper, thus leading to environmental benefits.
