HALIFAX, N.S. — After several fines, the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association (APTA) says Nova Scotia has compromised on the issue of red diesel to fuel reefer units.
According to the association’s newsletter, the APTA has reached the following concession with the province. When a trucker legally acquires marked fuel outside of Nova Scotia for the sole use of operating the cooling (cooling/heater) system of a reefer (trailer) unit and where the trucker can provide documentation to support such a purchase, then no further action shall be taken.
The association is quick to point out a trucker acquiring marked fuel from within the province is still not allowed to use it to run their reefer. This will be considered an offence and legal proceedings will commence.
