This webinar is designed to help you understand how the new rules for the sanitary transportation of human and animal foods will impact your logistics operations and to provide you with some of the tools needed to meet new regulations and customer demands.

Companies unable or unwilling to implement transportation food safety controls will find themselves locked out of many markets as receiving customers turn to certified food safety carriers and shippers. Logistics and other managers involved with shipping, carrying and receiving perishable food products are about to embark on a journey to clean up their load, unload and transportation processes. New procedures and ways of working based on the FDA’s hazard analysis risk-based preventive controls (HARPC) will be required. Maintenance and transportation operations must shift gears to assure implementation and reliability of sanitation and temperature controls.

You must know the rules and how they will impact you over the next months and years. There are relatively simple solutions if both shippers and carriers can come to agreement on the risk reducing procedures required to prevent contamination during transportation processes. We will cover basic hazard analysis, risk preventing controls, sanitation, testing, temperature monitoring, container traceability data and reporting systems, maintenance requirements, management responsibilities, standards and tell you who is excluded from the new FDA FSMA sanitary transportation rules.

Why should you Attend: You must prepare your perishable transportation processes to meet new FDA FSMA rules requirements. Take a walk around your operation and look for dirty floors, standing water, gloves and face masks on food handlers, pest residues, temperature monitors, and other indicators of your company readiness.

This session will quickly review proposed FDA FSMA rules on the sanitary and temperature controlled transportation of human and animal foods, show you how the FSMA will impact your suppliers and your operation, help to establish a path to help you in your planning and provide you with a summary of new hi-tech sanitation and temperature monitoring solutions. Basic data loggers will no longer meet driver reporting requirements about to be levied by the FSMA. Quick washouts with cold water will not meet hazard analysis standards. Process and product hazards and preventive procedures must be implemented. New solutions in the food residue and bacterial testing markets as well as new products for wireless temperature monitoring and data transmission must be researched, selected and implemented.

This webinar is designed to help you understand how the new rules for the sanitary transportation of human and animal foods will impact your logistics operations and to provide you with some of the tools needed to meet new regulations and customer demands.
