    This Leaflet specifies the principal characteristics of the wagons for combined transport designed for vertical transhipment. It is part of a series of leaflets covering "Intermodal traffic transhipment techniques - Technical conditions for the use of wagons and load units in international traffic".

    It describes wagons with compatibility code C, ISO, P and N in accordance with UIC Leaflet 596-6.

    The wagon compatibility code indicates which loading units may be carried on the wagon:

    • container wagons with compatibility code C are used to transport containers and swap bodies;
    • container wagons with compatibility code ISO are used to transport ISO containers;
    • recess wagons with compatibility code P or N are used to transport semi-trailers fitted with grab-handling grooves for vertical transhipment.

    These are described, along with their principal features:

    • Information on containers and swap bodies is contained in UIC Leaflet 592;
    • Information on craneable semi-trailers is contained in UIC Leaflet 596-5;
    • Information on wagon compatibility codes, the bases of codification and the execution of coding for CT routes is contained in UIC Leaflet 596-6.
