Abstract

Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs), also called Transport Refrigeration Units, are climate control devices that allow you to heat or cool the trailer when the engine is shut off. TRUs typically run off the main diesel engine while running down the road. However, when the trailer is parked, loading, or unloading, the TRU can continue to be powered by the main engine or run off a separate standby engine. These are typically diesel engines and emissions can have a direct impact on the air quality surrounding drivers and workers while the trucks are stationary.
