The eCMR is the Open Logistics Foundation’s first lighthouse project

Consignment notes are among the most frequently used documents in logistics, often still created and carried manually. The open source eCMR is intended to enable the production, storage, and further processing of digital consignment notes for both national and cross-border transport.

In perspective, a so-called eFreightfolder is to be developed – a digital folder in which further digital shipping documents such as hazardous goods documents, packing lists, certificates or pallet and weighing certificates slips can be stored.

“With the eCMR we want to ensure the consistent use of digital documents in supply chains,” says Andreas Nettsträter, CEO of Open Logistics Foundation.
