This quarter's topics included insight into the market by Rypos and our Dealers, discussion on increased CARB enforcement activity, a review of our Carrier & Thermo King filter availability, updates on Rypos' new product deployment, and a review of ARB’s compliance regulation for retrofits.

A summary of our presentation follows:

Market & Dealer Feedback - Ongoing volatility in our dealer's service business continues with some notable observations: 

  • Increased enforcement efforts have had an effect on sales
  • Recent sizable orders for large fleets that required immediate solutions
  • Although new TRU deliveries are still well into 2022, Rypos' supply chain has remained secure - we have inventory.

Additionally, our Dealers provided the following insights:

  • Service revenues have been stable, freight rates are on the increase
  • Increased concern as parts lead times have increased
  • Filter activity (quotes and sales) are directly related to CARB compliance efforts

CARB Enforcement - Enforcement resources continue to step up their presence and are now supplemented by technology and partnerships to identify emissions violators including Non-Compliant TRU Operators and operators not addressing service bulletins.

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.
 
New Rypos Products - Rypos' CARB verified, Thermo King C Series, Carrier Vector, and Carrier X4 7300/7500 model filters are available and shipping now. 
  • Thermo King C-600Rypos' TK C Series Filter Product, compatible with the C-600 TRU has been released with part number 960-0097-00-08 and pricing. Dealer's reports continue to be favorable.

 

  • Carrier X-4Carrier Vector and X4 7300/7500 CARB verified filters are available and are in production. To date, 176 have been sold and positive feedback on belt life and ease of install has been received

Service Update - CARB has extended the deadline to 11/01/2021 for TK Owners to replace the Thermo King Filter plug. Replacement parts are available from Rypos.
 
ARB’s DPF Retrofit Regulation for 2021 - Transport Refrigeration Unit model year 2014 or older must be ARB compliant by 12/31/2021. Noncompliant carriers will not be listed on ARB’s 100 Percent Compliant Carrier List, impacting the ability to be hired in California.
  • CARB’s regulations continue to be in effect and deadlines apply.
  • Since 2015, engine replacements have not been a viable compliance strategy on 2008 and newer TRU’s
