SPLC directory contains many revisions
Dec 1, 2007 12:00 PM
The National Motor Freight Traffic Association Inc has published the 2007 Continental Directory of Standard Point Location Codes (SPLC). This new issue is designated NMF 102-O. The SPLC is a listing of nine-digit codes designed to uniquely identify freight origination and delivery locations.
NMFTA developed the SPLC to facilitate computerization in the transportation industry by providing each point originating freight and each point receiving freight with a code number so constructed as to identify each point with its geographic location. These codes cover locations in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and are used by railroads and trucking companies to develop rates and track the movement of freight.
The SPLC directory contains many revisions from the previous issue, reflecting new and revised assignments to motor carrier and railroad served locations. These include changes to DOD facilities as required by the Base Realignment and Closure Commission.
This directory is available in printed form for $173 plus shipping. A fixed-length ASCII file is also available on CD for $820 plus shipping. To order, visit www.nmfta.org or phone 866-411-6632.
