The Loading Authority (OT-5) process is changing. Starting in February, 2020 Loading Authority will transition to the new OT-57 interface. Learn what this is for, what it will look like, and how to be prepared.

2:00-3:00 PM Central
Presented by Matt Johnson
As many of you have already heard, AAR Circular OT-5 will be modified to remove sections pertaining to Loading Authority, and a new AAR Circular OT-57 will be published to address the new Loading Authority process and requirements. As a result, the current OT-5 system will be retired by Railinc and replaced with a new OT-57 platform. AllTranstek is an active member of the TAG as well as the systems development team that is driving these changes, which are a cooperative initiative between NAFCA (North America Freight Car Association) and the AAR (Association of American Railroads).
This presentation will include:
An overview of why this change is happening.
An explanation of the benefits and improvements of the new system.
Screens and workflow of the new OT-57 system (note that OT-57 is still in development).
A walk through of what each company will have to do to prepare for the change and when.
The currently proposed timeline for implementation.
We want to lift the rail industry to new heights, one customer at a time.
