Transport documents

A waybill is an indication of the transport contract between the sender and VR Transpoint. The sender is responsible for the accuracy of the waybill. Properly prepared transport documents guarantee the successful delivery of the goods.

As a legal document, a waybill is:

  • proof that the goods have been handed over for transport;
  • undertaking to carry the goods and hand them over to the recipient;
  • proof of the conditions of carriage.

Transport documents for rail transport

Preparing a waybill via the Asiakirjat app requires being a contractual customer and customer-specific IDs. As an additional service, we can save the waybill based on the information provided by the sender.

The waybill can also be submitted as an Edifact or XML message. Message traffic is always subject to a separate agreement. Contact rail logistics sales for further information.

You can prepare and submit the waybill at any time of the day; the waybill has to be delivered to VR Transpoint before initiating shunting work related to the transport and, in international transports, no later than three (3) hours prior to the planned border crossing.
