The initiatives undertaken by the SCHMIDT-Group in the context of progressive digitalisation have reached a new milestone. The project initiated under the auspices of ECTA (European Chemical Transport Organisation) for the paperless creation of cleaning certificates has gained momentum.
Represented by the SCHMIDT Belgium branch, digital ECD’s (European Cleaning Document) can now be made available to customers for our cleaning station at Wommelgem (near Antwerp). In the coming months this process will be extended to other cleaning stations in the SCHMIDT-Group and a fully integrated data transfer to our own forwarding software (TMS) will be created.
In the medium term, this should also lead to the exchange of other digital documents such as the electronic CMR.
