“The ILU-Code, a standardized identifier for intermodal loading units in Europe, is an important voluntary initiative supporting the competitiveness of Combined Transport. It is a very good example of paperless solution for stakeholders of these transport-chains.”

Violeta Bulc, European Commissioner for Transport


Welcome to the ILU-Code platform


The standard EN 13044-1 introduces an owner-code for the identification of European intermodal loading units (e.c. swap-bodies, semi-trailers), the ILU-Code, which is compatible with the worldwide BIC-Code used for containers according to ISO 6346.

The standard names the International Union of combined Road-Rail transport companies, UIRR (based in Brussels) as the Administrator of the Code.
