Introduction

The application maintains UN location codes and IATA airport codes. These codes are used in most freight applications to define the departure and destination points.

This data is standardized internationally. To ensure error free operation, country data is therefore maintained by Riege Software International via the SDS master system and distributed to all customer systems. Users should not have access to, nor change in any way this data.
