A CMR International Consignment Delivery Note / Lettre de Voiture International is 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.

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 Landing, 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.

If your haulage company wishes to transport goods via road haulage throughout mainland Europe and even internationally then the CMR International Consignment Note is the standard road haulage contract that UK road hauliers should use. The 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. Be aware that even if an articulated trailer or shipping container has been picked up at the docks via a UK-based haulage artic lorry the goods will still have travelled between two different countries, whether within the EU or not, so the haulage company than picks up the trailer or shipping container will require 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 a) the supplier of the goods b) for the recipient of the goods c) 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.

The CMR Delivery Note will always contain the following items as standard:

  • Date of CMR Consignment Note and the place at which it is completed initially
  • Name and Address of the Sender or Supplier
  • Name and Address of the Haulage Company or Carrier of the goods
  • Place and road transport Date of the goods plus the delivery address
