Can you provide any information on the 4 modules that will be available in the updated TSR?

The detailed requirements for each TSR module will be published shortly but this diagram shows how this will work.

Many of the TSR requirements will apply to all 4 modules but there will also be unique requirements for each module. Examples:

  • A van for TSR Level 1 will be required to have a fixed bulkhead between the driver and the cargo compartment;
  • A soft-sided trailer can still only be certified to Level 3 (as today) but the use of TIR cords to secure the curtains, returns to the Standard for dedicated shipments;
  • Ocean containers transported by road have unique challenges compared to a standard hard sided trailer. TSR 2020 will offer options to have Ocean containers utilised in a TSR certification.
