By April 27, 2023No Comments

Do you need to learn more about CARB regulations coming into effect at the end of 2023? Do you need to find how to sustain a manageable fleet while meeting regulatory requirements? Stop by our San Leandro location for a Lunch & Learn, May 11th. Talk with our industry experts and find out the new & innovative solutions Thermo King has been working on. 

What is Sonsray? 

For years Thermo King has provided temperature control systems for trailers, refrigerated containers, railway cars, along with heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. Our dealership is the largest provider of refrigeration equipment for the transportation industry in California & Nevada. From engine, frame, wheels, body, and more; we have you covered across the west coast! We pride ourselves on servicing companies who deliver and provide produce nationwide, essentially feeding America. As of today, we have evolved way past just reefers and provide world class fleet maintenance solutions. 

C.A.R.B – New Regulations 

When this new regulation was introduced, CARB announced it would only affect fleets with 50 or more trucks in their fleet. But with the latest update on the regulation, CARB board members have decided to lower the fleet requirement from 50 to 10. So businesses small to medium will be pushed to implement all-electric fleets to meet requirements. Implementation, according to PG&E, would start as soon as sometime this year. California’s Air Resources Board’s goal is to have a zero-emission truck & bus fleet everywhere possible by 2045. But specific markets, such as drayage applications, last-mile delivery, etc., would see significantly earlier changes to their fleets. 

e1000 – All Electric Unit 

With regulations concerning Co2 emissions and reduction of noise, this all electric unit assures you meet any current or future requirements. Also while maintaining FDA standards, putting your trust in a third party delivery company can be risky. Especially when you’re dealing with products that require a temperature specific climate such as pharmaceuticals, produce, and art. Our team at Sonsray is glad to add an all-electric refrigeration option for commercial vehicles and companies. Thermo King’s fully electric unit also aids in meeting sustainability targets throughout the cold-chain. Thermo King’s e-1000 transport refrigeration unit integrates with the vehicle’s system, which are powered by the vehicles onboard batteries. While also maximizing the batteries management systems to ensure thermal efficiency.
