April Edition: Iron Apple – Certified Driver Training for FSMA Compliance

Iron Apple Newsletter – Featured Content: Enforcement of Sanitary Transport rule came into effect April 6. Now that we are in the enforcement period of the sanitary transport rule, it is even more critical that you ensure your company meets the requirements. It is our understanding that the FDA, working with other government departments, will be doing road-checks, load inspections, facility inspections, recalls, warning letters and more. The result of not meeting requirements could be warning letters, fines, mandatory recalls, prosecution and more. Aside from the potential fines and prosecution for not being compliant, you could be putting your company at risk of losing contracts. We’ve heard from several of our clients that their shippers are requiring them to be FSMA compliant and provide documented proof before they are allowed to pick up or drop off any loads.

January Edition: Food Safety Transportation Solutions for Carriers, Brokers & Shippers Newsletter

Iron Apple Newsletter – Featured Content: Our company didn’t become an early adopter to the new STF (Sanitary Transportation of Food) regulations, because of this we lost a contract with one of our shippers.

So what does this mean for your business?
Many of our customers shared the same concerns. Developing a Food Safety Program can be complex and time consuming.  Most transportation companies don’t understand where to start, who to delegate this task to and how many resources will be required.  Here at Iron Apple we have taken all of the guess work and challenges out of the equation and have created a simplified solution. There are less than 65 working days left until the FDA could take enforcement action if your company is not compliant with the new rules.  However, if you act now there is still enough time to get your company compliant before this deadline.
