Paperwork...

Postby Burgundy Logistics » Friday 22 January 2016, 07:52

Hi,

Apart from a CMR and POD invoice/receipt etc, what other paperwork is needed to courier stuff around Europe?

Also is the CMR still in 4 parts? And is there anyone that prints CMR's and other courier paperwork?

Thanks for any help, Mark

He's probably languishing in a Swiss jail - I think Brad was being a bit ironic! A guy asked a simple question on here about taking the scouts camping to Switzerland . I replied as follows:

"You could be heading for something very simple or alternatively a minefield.

Switzerland although in the "middle" of Europe is not in the EU so the "free movement of goods and people" thing does not apply and the Swiss are very strict at border customs and duties.

If you had a mini bus full of scouts, Christians or goths and were towing a trailer of their personal effects and a bit of camping gear the Swiss customs would make sure you have purchased a 40 Swiss franc vignette to use their lovely motorways and wave you through. If they are on the train and you just have the bags and the gear expect a rough time. Did you pack all these yourself sir? Do any of them contain bombs, guns a bit of weed or a tin of luncheon meat? Will everything you bring in be coming back out? If the whole thing is a commercial venture then you are into nightmare of paperwork and agents when you leave the UK and crossing the Swiss border at Basel

Taking a hire van abroad is certainly possible but usually at an exorbitant hire rate compared to domestic hire. They usually include something like a AA five star breakdown package at your cost

If you like roundabouts, driving through small towns and have time on your hands you can avoid the toll roads but when you cut the triangle from Metz to Basle and avoid the tolls you find some rather large hilly bits in the way. Don't think about saving the Swiss charge that option is only for loony bikers who like fresh air.

The only sensible advice for Europe is simply don't drive tired - stand at a motorway services and look around at the zombies kidding themselves that coffee will keep them bright and then look out for the blue lights and the body bags a few miles further on.
