Carriers can now use an online self-assessment tool designed to help evaluate their processes and procedures for complying with the Food Safety Modernization Act. It was developed by American Trucking Associations’ Agricultural and Food Transporters Conference, along with the American Frozen Food Institute.

The tool generates a detailed readiness report and indicates where action may be needed by food shippers, carriers, receivers, and loaders in order to stay compliant with FSMA.

"The changing regulatory environment can be a challenge for motor carriers," said Jon Samson, AFTC executive director. "This tool can help fleets ensure they are complying with these rules related to the transportation of food."

Once the self-assessment is completed, a listing of food safety, transportation, and logistics related service providers is generated, offering various entities in the food supply chain with solutions in each of these operational areas.

The tool is available for purchase for $199 for ATA members and $495 for non-members.
