Freight Loss Data Exchange

The Freight Loss Data Exchange (FLDX) is a monthly process that is used to exchange foreign line debits for freight claims and produce settlement reports for railroads that participate in the National Damage Prevention and Freight Loss system. The application takes in freight loss data provided by participating roads and forwards freight claim records and a net settlement report.

This net settlement report shows the details of the freight loss and damage claims for interline shipments and the portion of the claim that is to be paid by each carrier. The application provides a data consolidation service to the interline carriers where all of the freight loss claim data settlement are assembled into a report that informs each carrier as to their claim liability in relation to all other participating carriers.
