Internet Truckstop Offers New Tool for Complying With CARB Regulations

Internet Truckstop, an online freight-matching service, has developed a new decision-support tool and free webinar series to help users of Truckstop.com comply with new regulations of the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

While the weight of the regulations fall primarily on carriers, the company said, brokers and shippers face penalties for failing to ensure that they are contracting with compliant partners. Internet Truckstop's load board helps them to identify which carriers are in compliance with the CARB regulations.
