Posted: 18 Jan 2013 08:59:32
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.

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.
