tru -- ARB publishes TRU Advisory 13-25 on Enforcement of the Broker-Forwarder-Shipper-Receiver Requirements for reefers

Posted: 28 Feb 2013 10:19:45
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) has posted TRU Advisory
13-25 on ARBís Transport Refrigeration Unit (TRU) Website. 

TRU Advisory 13-25 explains the ARBís enforcement plan for the
freight broker, forwarder, shipper, receiver, carrier, and driver
requirements under ARBís TRU Regulation.  These new requirements
are needed to protect public health and ensure that TRU owners
that have invested in cleaner equipment are not at a competitive
disadvantage relative to noncompliant carriers.

More detailed information is provided in TRU Advisory 13-25,
which is posted on the TRU Website at: 

Updated Guidance for Brokers, Forwarders, Shippers, Receivers,
Carriers, and Drivers on Hiring and Contracting TRU-Carrier
Transport of Perishable Goods on California Highways and
Railways, as well as general information about the TRU Regulation
is also available at the above 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.
