Dutch term or phrase: CMR
I am currently working on a transport document, and would like help with the above term. I understand a CMR is used for international transport, but is there an English translation for this phrase?

Many thanks for your suggestions!

Explanation:
You can leave it the way it is, because it is an international term that is used everywhere, just like FOB, CAF, etc. It's in fact a bill of lading if you like, that is used for shipment that go by road. For air shipments you have an airwaybill.

Hope this helps.
