tru -- ARB Provides Link to Electronic Tracking System Supplier List for TRUs (reefers)

Posted: 21 Nov 2012 13:21:52
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) has posted on the TRU
Website its Electronic Tracking System (ETS) Supplier List for
transport refrigeration units (TRU) equipped with electric
standby and hybrid electric (both referred to herein as E/S). 

A direct link to this list is: 

ARBís ETS Supplier List will be updated periodically as GPS
tracking system suppliers show ARB they understand the
requirements for automated monitoring, recordkeeping, and
reporting.  Users need to know that the ETS Supplier List is not
intended to imply ARB endorsement or recommendation of any kind. 
Users of this list are advised to use due diligence in evaluating
offerings from companies on this list.

If a TRU owner is using E/S to comply with the in-use performance
standards, the TRU Regulation requires ETS to be used by January
1, 2013, on 50 percent of a fleetís TRUs that are using E/S to
comply.  Then, by January 1, 2014, all TRUs that are using E/S to
comply must be equipped with ETS.  Manual recordkeeping is
required until these deadlines.  As indicated above, ETS includes
automated monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting, with GPS
tracking.  ARBís Guidance for E/S and ETS provides more details
on these requirements.

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.
