CARB Issues First Fine Under 2004 TRU Regulations

Posted by:

The San Bernardino County Superior Court has fined Foster Enterprises, an Ontario-based refrigerated transportation and cold storage business, $300,000 after a California Air Resources Board (CARB) investigation revealed that the company failed to upgrade older diesel engines in its refrigerated trailer fleet as required to meet current California emissions standards.

The case resulted in the first court-imposed fine issued under CARB’s 2004 Transport Refrigeration Unit (TRU) regulation.  The company will pay $200,000 and the balance of the fine will be stayed, as long as they comply with the terms in the judgment handed down by the San Bernardino County Superior Court, and keep their fleet updated as required.
