Tutorial slides are now available, with notes below each slide, to explain the new requirements for freight brokers, forwarders, shippers, receivers, carriers, and drivers that went into effect January 1, 2013. These TRU Tutorial PowerPoint slides are posted at the TRU Website. They are based on ARB's Guidance for Brokers, Forwarders, Shippers, Receivers, Carriers, and Drivers on Hiring and Contracting TRU-Carrier Transport of Perishable Goods on California Highways and Railways. The Guidance is also available in Spanish at the TRU Website. Where can I get more information?

Background: TRUs are refrigeration systems powered by integral diesel internal combustion engines designed to control the environment of temperature-sensitive products that are transported in trucks, trailers, shipping containers, and railcars. The emissions from these units are a source of unhealthful air pollutants including particulate matter, toxic air contaminants, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and hydrocarbons, that all pose a potential threat to both public health and the environment. These units often congregate in large numbers at California distribution centers, grocery stores, and other facilities where they run for extended periods of time to ensure their perishable contents remain cold or frozen. These distribution and loading facilities are often in close proximity to schools, hospitals, and residential neighborhoods. In 2004, the TRU Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) was adopted by the Board to reduce diesel particulate matter emissions from TRUs and TRU gen set engines. Amendments were adopted by the Board in November 2010 and October 2011.
