This convention dates from 1956 and regulates international road traffic. The document used is the CMR Consignment Note, which shows the existence of a transport contract and that the product has been received by the carrier.

TIR is a system involving the issue of a carnet to road hauliers, which allows loaded vehicles to cross national frontiers with minimum customs formalities. The signatories of the Convention are countries from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and North America.
