Abstract:The research was carried out at the freight forwarding logistics company Vervo, based in Latvia. Vervo SIA is developing a unified platform called Onfrex to bring together all transportation industry participating parties: consignors, consignees, and carriers. The use of electronic CMR note (eCMR) can solve many issues related to the traditional hard copy CMR, such as high fraud activities, extra material and administrative costs, and additional paperwork for employees. However, the implementation of eCMR is still limited in many countries and companies due to challenges with e-signatures, such as different e-document formats, validity, weight, and sensitivity of the information. Additionally, the consignment note cannot be signed digitally in cross-border situations due to differences in their local regulations for e-signature and the e-document has to be encrypted and decrypted. Hence, Vervo managers are interested in combining eCMR and e-signatures and are keen to explore how technology can facilitate this process.
