AFTC Launches Food Safety Compliance Self-Assessment Tool
New York Ag Connection - 08/08/2017

American Trucking Associations' Agricultural and Food Transporters Conference, along with the American Frozen Food Institute, launched a new online self-assessment tool to help motor carriers evaluate their processes and procedures for complying with the Food Safety Modernization Act.

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

The tool generates a detailed readiness report and indicates where action may be needed by food shippers, carriers, receivers and loaders to ensure their compliance with FSMA implementation. Furthermore, upon completion of the self-assessment, 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 was designed in partnership with Seneca Corp., Marion, N.Y., and is available to purchase.
