Eumos, the European Safe Logistics Association, today reaches another milestone in cargo securing by introducing a new tool for loads travelling through Europe providing its identification, traceability, safety and all information related to the load and the logistical process. By defining the minimum requirements to be included into the “European Cargo Safety Card” – a single document with the precise instructions on the load and its securing onto the vehicle or the container – Eumos creates an easily recognisable checklist for everyone contributing to the logistics chain. These minimum requirements are described in the recently finalised standard EUMOS 40674.
Eva Hernandez Ramos, transport lawyer and co-chair of the Technical Committee working on the standard, proudly recognises that “Eumos has managed to draw up a verification system with several security levels to the Cargo Safety Cards with the highest security system relying on the blockchain technology providing integrity, absence of intermediaries, tracking possibilities and a timestamp. This will take the logistics sector to a next level of digitalisation.”
