Sanitary Transportation of Food Rule

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration last week issued its final rule establishing new requirements for the sanitary transportation of human and animal food by truck and rail, to guard against food contamination. The rule obligates shippers, loaders, rail and motor carriers and receivers engaged in food transportation and freight brokers when they initiate food shipments. It also addresses requirements for training, records and waivers.

Transport Topics has posted a review of the final rule.
