A new coding system for intermodal loading units was introduced according to the European standard EN13044 since July 2011.
Compatible with the BIC-Code for ISO containers the ILU-Code allows a unified identification of the owner of intermodal loading units (mainly swap bodies and semi-trailers) circulating within the European region.
As administrator of the ILU-Code, UIRR is issuing the Codes through the website www.ilu-code.eu .
By 1 July 2014, only loading units featuring an ILU- or BIC-Code will be accepted on inter-modal transport:
The implementation of the ILU-Code will ease running operations in Combined Transport.
