Information technology - Unique identifiers - Part 1: Unique identifiers for transport units
|Publication Date:||1 January 2007|
|ICS Code (Information coding):||35.040|
This part of ISO/IEC 15459 specifies a unique, non-significant string of characters for the identification of transport units. The character string is intended to be represented in a bar code label or other AIDC media attached to the item to meet item management needs. To address management needs, different classes of items are recognized in the various parts of ISO/IEC 15459, which allows different requirements to be met by the unique identifiers associated with each class. The rules for the unique identifier for transport units, to identify physical logistical transfers, with the identity relevant for the duration of one or more items in the load being held or transported as part of that load, are defined and supported by an example.
