ARI Offers CARB Consultation to Keep Clients' Diesel Fleets Compliant

MT. LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwire - October 7, 2009) - Automotive Resources International (ARI®), a leading global fleet solutions provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, announces proactive consultation services to clients with diesel fleets that will enable them to remain compliant with California Air Resource Board (CARB) regulations.

Using its web-based fleet management system, ARI insights®, ARI has identified all clients that operate at least three diesel-powered on- and off-road vehicles and equipment over 14,000 lbs. in the state of California or that travel through it. ARI's Strategic Consulting team will work closely with each client to develop solutions so all affected vehicles meet CARB regulations. This includes managing associated activities such as reporting, replacements, retrofits and more.

"ARI ensures clients adhere to all diesel emissions regulations, thereby avoiding the costs and downtime brought on by unapproved equipment and misfiled paperwork," commented John Mack, manager environmental and fuel strategies. "Many other states are considering adopting CARB-like measures, and we are prepared to help all of them understand how they measure up to the multitude of complex federal, state and regional regulations and make recommendations on how to achieve full compliance."

Also, millions of dollars in funds are available for fleets through clean air incentive programs. ARI will assist companies with the highly competitive grant application process. Dollars won can be used to offset the cost of replacing older trucks or for emission-reducing exhaust retrofits.
