TRU Dealer Update

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
Carrier & TK Filter Availability - Our Carrier and Thermo King products were introduced as a response to ARB's requirement that engines below 25 HP meet T4F standards seven years after the engine model year starting 2020 and beyond.
 
Our supply chain has remained secure and our workforce has been able to produce products while taking the necessary CDC precaution. 
  • 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.
New Rypos Products - Rypos' CARB verified, Thermo King C Series, Carrier Vector, and Carrier X4 7300/7500 model filters are available and shipping now. 
  • 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.

Service Update - Rypos provided a reminder of the recent letter sent to TK Owners from CARB regarding the replacement of the Thermo King Filter plug deadline extension of 6/30/21 and the Carrier filter flange installation. Replacement parts are available from Rypos.
 
ARB’s DPF Retrofit Regulation for 2021 - No changes to ARB's requirement for 2021 Year-end compliance for 2014 and older TRUs. Noncompliant carriers will not be listed on ARB’s 100 Percent Compliant Carrier List, and cannot be hired to haul perishable goods in California.
  • 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.
