The FSMA Regulations Are Devastating For Trucking Companies
Food Safety Modernization Act Standards Include Load Rejections And Delays For SUSPECTED Contamination
- Changes in the law allow the government to put a hold on a load if it believes it to be adulturated.
- Anyone in possession of a load suspected of contamination (regardless of how it was handled) can be found personally liable for the load or can even face jail time.
- There is only one insurance policy on the market that will cover losses in the event a load has to be destroyed if the government suspects it to be contaminated- ECBM is one of the only brokers in the country that has been granted access to it.
- This law now affects everyone in the supply chain- freight brokers, logistics providers, freight forwarders, warehouse operators, carriers for hier, bailees, shippers & owners, processors, manufacturers, distributors, and installation & rigging contractors.
