Brokers, Shippers Are Liable for CARB-TRU Compliance

The deadline for reefer compliance was January 1, and California’s Air Resources Board (CARB) is already fining carriers for continuing to use non-compliant transport refrigeration units (TRU) within the state’s borders.

Shippers, freight forwarders and brokers are also liable, however. If you expect to handle any refrigerated freight in California during the peak produce season, you can still set up your due diligence procedures for CARB-TRU compliance – now with help from DAT CarrierWatch.

CarrierWatch gives you instant access to a list of carriers whose reefer fleets are fully CARB-compliant. You can search the DAT Registry for a compliant carrier by simply checking a box:
