The Switching Settlements Data Exchange (SSDX) is a monthly financial exchange that offers railroads of all sizes an automated, standardized way to process switching charges. SSDX simplifies and expedites billing and ensures accuracy of switching charges by collecting and validating switching data, calculating net settlements, and issuing inbound and outbound reports to participating roads.

Railroads that provide switching services submit a consolidated monthly billing statement electronically through SSDX instead of sending paper invoices to multiple carriers.

SSDX is integrated with Railroad Clearinghouse (RCH), a centralized system for rail industry participants to administer and transfer funds.
