3 2 Definition of Mileage Equalization Mileage Equalization is the process by which RR’s are compensated for the movement of excessive empty routing of cars Implemented as part of an agreement on how RR’s will be compensated for private car moves In the US it applies to only Tank cars and is covered under Tariff 6007 In Canada it is covered under individual tariffs by CN and CPRS There is no equalization in Mexico

4 3 Definition of Mileage Equalization US mileage equalization is covered under tariff 6007 Item 187 Rate is set annually in September retroactive to the first of each year and is determined by the formula in the Ex. Parte 328 agreement between RR’s and tank car owners Equalization invoices are issued by Railinc in July for movements during the previous year

5 4 Mileage Adjustments Adjustments to equalization miles are sent to the RR’s and can be made for up to three years Adjustments for the current accounting year, including any adjustments for prior accounting years must be reported by May 20, of each year Adjustments made after May 20 will be reported in the current year, not the year of the adjustment

6 5 Mileage Adjustments – Car Owners If RR’s do not automatically adjust discrepancies, then report discrepancies to RR’s in writing, copy to AAR Carriers have 30 days to make adjustments. Advise car owner when adjustment made – ALSO ADVISE AAR IF OWNER REQUEST FOR ADJUSTMENT SHOWS COPY TO AAR AAR will make adjustments if the Rail carrier fails to respond to your request (This is done prior to year end)
