In order to facilitate pinpoint deliveries of high priority war goods, in 1944 the US instituted a coding system that was used to send goods that supported US forces deployed overseas. These were made complex due to the number of customers needing support, as well as the detail required for pinpoint shipments.

Note: we have provided a number of complete valid codes which have been taken from actual vehicles. By mixing and matching the components, you can produce a good set of codes for nearly any late war replacement vehicle.

Information found in "The US Army in WWII - The Technical Services - Transportation Corps: Movements, Training, and Supply" pp.397-398, Wardlow, US GPO 1956; also, TM 38-414 and updates covered specific codes.
