The Damaged and Defective Car Tracking (DDCT) System
This is a new web-based application that provides a centralized system for tracking damaged and defective rail cars handled under AAR Interchange and Car Hire Rules. DDCT provides more accurate information to repair shops on cars that are coming in for repair and provides an easy way for the shops to communicate with car owners and carriers about the status of repairs. The new system more efficiently processes and shares information on car history, condition, location, ownership and repair status. This information allows for a seamless process of receiving, repairing and returning cars to their owners.
The below links will assist you in understanding how to use this system that becomes effective January 2011.
