Carriers: How Will the Food Safety Modernization Act Affect Your Business?

Press Release

Do you understand how the Food Safety Modernization Act will affect your business? Are you familiar with the Uniform Safety Transportation Protocol?

Carriers large and small will benefit from participation in the UFSTP, as the new FDA rule will require carriers to be FSMA compliant to stay competitive. We have already seen contract language reflecting this change.

Participation in the UFSTP is important, and we encourage carriers to look into being a part of the Protocol. There is a small annual fee to participate but the amount of money it could save you in business is well worth the investment.
