The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) includes changes related to sanitary transportation that will affect retailers and wholesalers with distribution centers; and retailers and wholesalers with distribution centers and truck fleets.

For example, FDA includes requirements related to the design and maintenance of vehicles and transportation equipment to ensure that it does not cause the food that it transports to become contaminated. (Reference: Stephanie Barnes, Regulatory Counsel, Food Marketing Institute)
