The CMR form is a consignment note. It is the document prepared by the sender attesting that the goods have been delivered to the consignee. The data contained in the CMR letter are: the consignor, the consignee, the accompanying documents, the type and quantity of the goods transported, the registration number of the vehicle and the carrier. These data must be filled in correctly in the consignment note. The CMR is drawn up in three original copies, one of which (proof of receipt) is for the sender, the second is for the carrier, and the third is for the consignee (proof of delivery). It must contain:

  • a) the place and date of its elaboration
  • b) the name and address of the sender
