The Damaged Defective Car Tracking (DDCT) application allows electronic transmission of damaged and defective equipment. DDCT allows you to easily update, retrieve and share information in a timely manner through enhancing the communication between handling carriers and car mark owners

Equipment Health Management System (EHMS) communicates the condition of the equipment and sends alerts to responsible parties when repairs are needed via a web-based application. EHMS also allows car owners, railroads, and equipment maintenance providers to report equipment repairs and collect repair history data.

Early Warning (EW) is an application that creates early warning and maintenance advisories that identify mechanical problems which could impede the safe moving or handling of equipment. The Early Warning System is a single source for accurate, up-to-date notice data that enables efficient and reliable inspection and repair reporting.

CarLogix meets all of the Multi-Level Pool Bill requirements (MLPB) and allows for easy repair billing, company defined charges, and automated file submissions to ensure repairs are recorded efficiently and accurately. Carlogix eliminates repetitive billing tasks by automatically creating pre trip expectations for a list of cars.
