Business Analysts

With e-CMRs, analysts can view and analyse post-trip data to identify supply chain bottlenecks at trip or consignment level. Analysis of information such as operational delays, combined with freight exchange observations, helps improve administration and the overall supply chain process.


Correct and up-to-date information is available for invoicing the transport to the customer, without duplicating the driver’s administrative efforts. Vehicle data combined with planning information provide an up-to-date digital freight document, available for the driver.

Shop Managers

Shop managers can get shipment-level details on the status of expected goods and prepare in advance for storage and returns. e-CMR provides specific information on the items to be returned.
