Greece accepts e-CMR: Greece has confirmed its commitment to fully paperless goods transport
As of 23rd October, Greece conformed its commitment to digital transports by acceding to the e-CMR protocol. This recent ratification of the UN protocol on digital consignment notes marks a pivotal moment for Greece, making it the 34th country to accept the e-CMR. It means that companies can now increase their digitalization when trading with and transporting to Greece.
From now on, international transports within or passing through Greece will no longer require to carry paper-based consignment note along the entire delivery process. All transport information and signatures can now be seamlessly managed and shared digitally. Greece's recent ratification not only represents a significant milestone for the country but also further paved the way for broader digitalization across the Mediterranean region. It fuels the momentum toward paperless supply chain data exchange, and rendering transport systems more transparent, accurate and efficient.
