Live Webcast


Final compliance dates for full implementation of the FDA Sanitary Transportation rules have passed. If you have not fully trained your staff, your company is out of compliance. This session will cover the basic rules.

Areas Covered in the Session:-

The session will cover each section of the new sanitary food transportation law you need to protect consumers and your company.

The new law went into effect on April 6, 2016, which means there is no time left for perishable food carriers, shippers, receivers, and maintenance operations to develop and implement risk-reducing preventive food handling, load, and unload, as well as make distribution and transportation process improvements.

Learning Objectives:-

  • Understand US FDA Laws for the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods
  • Understand changes from the proposed rules
  • Be able to use a simple checklist to perform a gap analysis between your current practices and new compliance requirements.
  • Begin to develop and implement a company transportation food safety plan to close any gaps
  • Write and implement appropriate container procedures (truck, trailer, sanitation, testing, container traceability, and temperature monitoring)
  • Develop a Shipper/Carrier “Contract of Carrier” that meets FDA requirements.
  • Know the different requirements for shippers, carriers, and receivers.
  • Understand load and unload requirements
  • Assure you have competent personnel in place
  • Understand new food transportation standards
  • Know which tools are required for food transportation sanitation controls
  • Know where to get certification training for drivers and other personnel


Over 84,000 food shippers, carriers and receivers are impacted by this law and most have less than one year for full compliance. This new law requires significant changes to procedures currently employed for food transportation operations, vehicles, tools, and equipment used in food transportation. The final rules have now established the law which has significant differences from earlier published proposed food transportation rules, laws, and guidance documents. Self-reporting of compliance failures is required as are critical shipper-carrier agreements for data, records, and reporting.

Transportation and Logistics food transportation food safety rules have been finalized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under congressional instructions, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires the FDA to audit, enforce and improve new rules of food transportation operations, personnel, vehicles, load and unload personnel and practices, cross-contact (contamination), vehicle storage, inspection and test, training, records retention, and vehicle qualification.
