CARB publishes reefer compliance webpage

Updated Jan 9, 2013

The California Air Resources Board has a new webpage to provide guidance in determining Transport Refrigeration Unit compliance status.

Entities hiring a carrier to transport perishable goods on California highways or railways must only hire or contract with carriers that agree to dispatch TRUs that meet CARB’s in-use performance standards for TRUs. 

The regulation became effective Tuesday.

In 2004, CARB adopted the TRU Airborne Toxic Control Measure, later amended in 2010 and 2011, to reduce emissions from TRUs and TRU gen set engines.
