Carnet TIR (International Road Transport book) is a customs transit document which gives the right to transfer cargo across the state borders in lorry bodies or containers sealed by the Customs with simplification of customs procedures. The document covers aumobile and multimodule carriages (made in autovans, trailers, semitrailers and containers) between the states that endorsed The Customs Convention on the International Transport of Goods under Cover of TIR Carnets (TIR Convention, 1959 and 1975). All automobile vehicles should have relevant permissions from appropriate authorities for their use. The book is issued by a national guaranteeing union (association) that is authorised by appropriate authorities of the country. A TIR Carnet is a book with up to 20 pages, and at each Customs Office a pair of vouchers are teared away. Therefore, a 20-voucher Carnet may be used for a TIR transport through up to 10 countries including the countries of departure and destination. The TIR is filled in by a carrier.
СМR ia an international consignment note (waybill) which is functionally the document that confirms conclusion of the agreement for international carriage of goods by automobile transport.

CMR is issued in three copies: the first copy is given to a consignor, the second is attached to the goods, and the third one is taken by a carrier of the cargo. A consignor should fill in (insert all relevant data) into the CMR.
