The International Road Transport is the only type of transport capable of carrying out a door-to-door service on its own, that is, it can collect the good at the exporter's factory and deliver it directly to the importer.

It is also a type of transport that facilitates the loading and unloading operations.

Due to its flexibility; it is also an essential mode of transport for the factories working on Just-In-Time basis.

CMR Convention (Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road).

This convention dates from 1956 and regulates the 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 the road hauliers, which allows loaded vehicles to cross the national frontiers with a minimum customs formalities. The signatories of the Convention are countries from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and North America.
