Insured Waybill


Explanation:
The explanations of other answerere are correct. But the difference of the CMR Waybills in conparation with other waybills is that by the CMR-Waybill the goods and the transporter are covered against transport risks within the rules of the International CMR Convention. This kind of waybills can be issued only in transports between countries which are parts of the CMR convention and can be issued by transporters which are insured by CMR.
