“A comprehensive, single-source web tool, CHRNSS makes it easy for industry participants to engage in car-hire rate negotiations,” Railinc said. “The Railinc-supported application features a bid-and-offer dashboard that reduces the administrative effort required for car-hire rate negotiations, and facilitates better matching of lessee needs with available railcars.” CHRNSS—originally launched in March 2013—replaced Railinc’s Deprescription application.
The features in this release include the ability to:
• Query Car Hire Accounting Rate Master rates and download them in CSV format.
• View historical and current bid and offer details.
• Manage notifications via the CHRNSS dashboard.
“With CHRNSS, users can make more informed car-hire decisions quickly,” said Railinc President and CEO Allen West. “Railinc provides reference materials and other resources to help users learn critical CHRNSS features and functionality, including CHRNSS FAQs and a user guide. CHRNSS gives users convenient access to essential data they need to improve productivity and streamline car-hire rate negotiations. This release gives users features and functionality that enable them to make the best car-hire decisions for their business.”
Railroads, car owners, and third-party leasing companies interested in using CHRNSS must have a Railinc account to request access to the application. For more information about CHRNSS, contact the Railinc Customer Support Center at (877) 724-5462 or by email at email@example.com.
