What merchants should know about CMR to preserve their right and interests

International Transport Law made easy
What merchants should know about CMR to preserve their right and interests
CMR is the abbreviation referring to an international convention on the international transport of goods by road. The name itself carries three messages:
It pertains to road transport, meaning other modes of transport such as air, sea, rail are out of its scope,
This convention observes international transport, meaning that at least two countries should be involved,
It is dealing with “goods” not passengers.
This convention was drafted and immediately came into force in 1956 in Geneva. The initial member countries who ratified the text were mainly European ones.
What the users and people however perceive from the term ”CMR” is the document or Bill of Lading which is issued by the transport Co. according to the regulations guidelines. Needless to say that this perception is wrong. Why? Because first of all, according to this convention’s stipulations the title of transport issued is a way bill and not specifically a bill of lading. Then the name of such document is CMR way bill or consignment note, and not simply CMR. This is the first usual mistake that many road hauliers, shippers( suppliers or sellers), and consignees( receivers or buyers) repeatedly commit out of pure habit.
