Loading Guidelines

Verladerichtlinien / Règles de Chargement

Safety of loading in freight transportation is a shared concern by all actors in the rail logistics supply chain: RUs, carriers, consigners/shippers.
The UIC Code of practice for the loading and securing of goods on railway wagons is a reference for a safe loading; the Principles (volume 1) contain the rules to be observed and the Goods (volume 2), loading guidelines for specific types of goods, developed in compliance with the Principles based on experiences and carriage tests.

Line categories / Catégories de lignes / Streckenklassen

Each RU designates a standard line category that correspond to the majority of its lines open to international traffic and exceptions [https://uic.org/IMG/pdf/180213_line_categories_file_3.1.pdf]
Please find the explanation guide:
[https://uic.org/IMG/pdf/explanation_guide_22.03.2012_fr_de_en.pdf]
The RUs shall send to UIC for publication the data on the railway lines they use; only a few such lists are currently available:
