Car Repair Billing

Car Repair Billing (CRB) is Railinc's system for managing invoices of car repairs. The Car Repair Billing system has two different methods for submitting invoices: the Car Repair Billing Data Exchange (CRBDX) and the Billing Repair Card (BRC) interface.

  • Car Repair Billing Data Exchange (CRBDX) is a monthly exchange for receiving and transmitting invoices to registered billed parties. CRBDX utilizes industry rules and requirements to validate received invoices. These industry rules are defined in the Car Repair Billing Procedures Manual, the Office Manual of the AAR Interchange Rules, and the Field Manual of the AAR Interchange Rules. Refer to the Car Repair Billing Data Exchange web page for more information.

  • Billing Repair Card (BRC) is a component of the Car Repair Billing system that provides an interface for receiving and transmitting invoices, which are referred to as Billing Repair Cards. The interface ensures that all required fields are populated before the BRC is submitted for pricing and performs basic validation on fields (such as checking that the repair date is not in the future). Refer to the Billing Repair Card web page for more information.

The Car Repair Billing Price Master is a quarterly electronic publication with AAR-determined freight car repair charges as related to labor and material components. Car Repair Billing system users have the option of purchasing the Price Master directly from Railinc. Refer to the Car Repair Billing Price Master web page for more information.
