Even if the ILU-Code implementation has to be done mainly by the owners of (continental) intermodal transport units (e.g. semi-trailers and and swap bodies) it is also important for the managers of intermodal terminals where these units apear regularly. The information attached explains the background and necessary steps the terminals should consider to be prepared for July 2014 when the ILU-code shall be used widely according to the implementation plan of the UIC railways and UIRR operators. Accompanying the ILU-Code implementation is supported by the European Union in the framework of the Marco Polo Common Learning project DESTINY (www.destiny-project.eu). Further information on the ILU-Code can also be picked-up from the website of the issuing organisation (www.ilu-code.eu).
