Car Repair Billing Data Exchange

The Car Repair Billing Data Exchange (CRBDX), maintained by Railinc, is a monthly exchange of repair bills for foreign freight equipment. Repairing entities submit bills of car repairs in a proprietary format. These bills are sorted and sent to the billed party for the equipment. The data serves as detail support for paper billing documents. Selected elements of the exchanged data are retained for use in equipment failure trend analysis.
