Car Accounting Self-Service

The Car Accounting Self-Service (CASS) application enables car accountants to access and analyze data around car hire liability. It translates event data into actionable information on scenarios such as Rule 5 transfers of liability. Users can view information on an individual piece of equipment for a range of up to 90 days. It also enables railroads to submit a Liability Acceptance Message (LAM) when erroneous event reporting has caused car hire responsibility to be assigned to the wrong carrier.

CASS also enables Car Hire Liability File (CHLF) recipients to view a car's possession and liability data from the file. This feature includes payables and receivables data, embedded movement events to support records of loaded and empty cycles, CHARM rates and detailed mileage data for each cycle.
