Damaged and Defective Car Tracking

The Damaged and Defective Car Tracking (DDCT) system is a centralized web-based application that users can easily update, retrieve and share information in a timely manner. The DDCT system interfaces with many of Railinc's products to ensure its users have a near-seamless experience. The result is better communication and collaboration among rail partners for better equipment management, improved rail safety and reduced administrative costs.

Damaged cars are handled in accordance with AAR Interchange Rule 107, and defective cars are handled in accordance with AAR Interchange Rules 1, 96 and 108. AAR Interchange Rule 95 is used for any damaged equipment that can be returned to service.
