Webinar: 9 things to know about the new rules for transporting food

The rules of the game changed this spring for carriers, shippers and receivers involved in the transportation of food. It happened with the publication of the final Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rule on Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food, which establishes requirements for transportation equipment, operations, and the training and certification of carrier personnel.

Even truck operators that have always done “everything right” will discover that what now equals “doing it right” is more complex than it was before. If you are involved in the transportation of food, you should not miss the free webinar put on by folks across the hall at Fleet Owner.

The webinar, Nine things you need to know about the new rules for transporting food, is Thursday, Aug. 11, at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT. National expert on the new regulation and on food transportation safety, Dr. John Ryan, president of, will cover the new FDA regulation from scope and applicability, to equipment and cargo monitoring requirements, reporting, training and (the few) compliance waivers.

Brett Mowers, transportation manager for River Valley Foods, will give attendees an insider’s look at compliance and best practices at this highly regarded food supply and delivery company.
