On June 23rd, Rypos held our quarterly TRU Dealer Webinar.
The topics included a market update, discussion on increased CARB activity, a review of our Carrier & Thermo King filter availability, Rypos' new product releases, and a review of ARB’s compliance regulation for retrofits.
A summary of our presentation follows:
Market & Dealer Feedback - The past year has seen volatility in our dealer's service business with some notable observations:
- New trailer and TRU deliveries are out between 8-12 months
- Filter activity is directly related to CARB compliance efforts
- Freight rates are on the increase
CARB Enforcement - Enforcement resources continue to step up their presence in all regions and at all times day/night with a focus on:
- Non-Compliant TRU Operators
- Operates without the plug modification
- Thermo King - Rypos has inventory for Thermo King single temp and multi-temp units
- Carrier - Rypos has inventory on Standard Standard and Pre-XT kits.
- Rypos' Thermo King C Series Filter Product, compatible with the C-600 TRU has been released with part number 960-0097-00-08 and pricing.
- Initial orders have been received, first shipments have been installed and dealer reports are favorable.
- Carrier Vector and X4 7300/7500 model filters are available and shipping now.
- Filter and controls are the same as the current Carrier filters designed for installation efficiency using the OEM frame bracket with Rypos' DPF mounting bracket.
- Engine replacements will not be a viable compliance strategy on 2008 and newer TRU’s
- CARB’s regulations continue to be in effect and deadlines apply.
