  1. aar

    The term "AAR" doesn't have a general definition as such since it's an abbreviation that could stand for various things depending on the context. 1) In business, it often refers to "After Action Review", which is a structured review or debrief process for analyzing what happened, why it happened, and how to ensure it happens better next time. 2) In the shipping industry, it can mean "Against All Risks", a type of insurance covering all possible risks (except those specifically excluded). 3) In transportation, it can refer to the "Association of American Railroads", a trade association for the North American rail industry. Without context, it's difficult to provide a comprehensive definition.

Examples of aar in a Sentence

  1. Jeremy Ferguson:

    Absolutely, when an incident like this happens, it brings all the issues to light, how unsafe the rail industry truly is. I didn’t think we had any chance before this. The railroads and AAR do a very good job of lobbying in DC. So generally it’s difficult to get people to vote for something like this rule. But sometimes it takes a disaster to drive home the point. Any time you turn the TV on, there’s still an issue. It’s not going away.
