What is a CMR Consignment Note?
A CMR Consignment Note confirms that the haulage company has received the goods in full and that they have a commercial contract to ship to another destination from the supplier.
CMR delivery notes are used to document the details of a shipment, including the sender and recipient information, the type and quantity of goods being shipped, and any special instructions or requirements.
They also serve as a receipt for the goods being shipped, and can be used as proof of delivery.

What are the benefits of ‘CMR’ Delivery Notes?
The benefits of using a printed CMR International Consignment Delivery Note / Lettre de Voiture International for British haulage companies is that it's a mandatory 4-part, European-wide delivery note for heavy transport, containing a standard set of transport and liability conditions, replacing a company's terms and conditions when companies want to use a provider to transport goods internationally by road.
The CMR note confirms to whomever needs to see it, that the haulage business has received the goods and has a contract from the supplier to carry them on the lorry.
A CMR confirms that the carrier (i.e. the road haulage company) has received the goods and that a contract of carriage exists between the trader and the carrier.
Unlike a BoL Bill of Lading, a CMR is not a document of title nor a declaration, although some European states regard it as such.
It doesn’t necessarily give its holder and/or the carrier any rights of ownership or possession of the goods, although some insurance is included.
What Features do CMR Consignment Notes have?
If a haulage company wishes to transport goods via road throughout mainland Europe and even internationally, then the CMR Consignment Note is the standard road haulage contract that UK and Irish road hauliers should use.
Be aware that even if an articulated trailer or shipping container has been picked up at the docks via a UK-based articulated lorry the goods will still have travelled between two different countries, whether within the EU or not, so the haulage company picking up the trailer or shipping container will require a CMR Consignment Note.
For complete details of the CMR note you'd need to DOWNLOAD the 'United Nations Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road' PDF.
The standard CMR International Consignment Note / Lettre de Voiture International is a 4-part Quadruplicate NCR Pad, which means you've got three extra copies of the original which includes one for:
- the supplier of the goods
- for the recipient of the goods
- to accompany the haulage driver of the goods whilst they're being transported via road
When the goods to be carried have to be loaded onto different articulated lorries or picked up via shipping container, or are different kinds or divided into different lots, the supplier of the goods or the road haulage company carrying the goods has the right to require a separate CMR International Consignment Note / Lettre de Voiture International to be completed for each vehicle used in the transport of the goods, or for each kind of the goods being transported.
