Customer Focus

Samskip transports hundreds of containers every day and every one of those containers requires a unique multimodal solution. Aiming to provide businesses with a more efficient and cost-effective solution, CO2 emissions are reduced significantly.

By implementing the digital consignment note Samskip provides the option of viewing the current status of the consignment note. Additionally, the shipper automatically receives the e-CMR via their account and directly into their mailbox, simply by providing the email addresses of the required recipients of e-CMR.

The shipper benefits from numerous advantages. By reducing administrative operations fewer actions are needed and thus faster the administrative settlement. The digital CMR solution upgrades the shippers' supply chain to a supply network, in which everyone has access to the same information at the same time. Lowering chances of notes getting lost, damaged, or not being readable at all by reducing paper consumption, all together with stimulating a close collaboration between the shipper, carrier, and recipient.

That is the business future of transporting with Samskip.
