Shippers Choice Transportation, LLC Settlement
Shippers Choice Transportation, LLC Settles For $25,000
In June 2023, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with Shippers Choice Transportation, LLC (Shippers Choice), with its principal location in Regan, Tennessee, in the amount of $25,000 for violating the Regulation to Reduce Emissions of Diesel Particulate Matter, Oxides of Nitrogen and Other Criteria Pollutants, from In-Use Heavy-Duty Diesel-Fueled Vehicles (Truck and Bus Regulation) as codified in the California Code of Regulations, title 13, section 2025.
An investigation conducted by CARB staff revealed that Shippers Choice was in violation of the prohibition on Glider Vehicles as codified in California Health and Safety Code section 43024.1 (Health & Saf. Code § 43024.1) and the Truck and Bus Regulation (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 13, § 2025 et seq.). The terms of the settlement include a requirement for Shippers Choice to pay a penalty of $5,000 with $20,000 being suspended as long as Shippers Choice does not violate CARB’s regulations moving forward.
Shippers Choice fully cooperated with CARB to resolve this matter. The $5,000 will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality.
