Last Friday, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) voted unanimously to adopt its Advanced Clean Feel (ACF) rule. The ACF rule bans the sale of diesel trucks by 2036 and the use of diesel trucks by 2042.

Drayage trucks have an even faster transition timeline. Any exiting truck registered in the CARB database by December 31, 2023 can remain in drayage service for 18 years or 800,000 miles, whichever comes first. Any new truck entered into the database starting January 1, 2024 must be a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV).

CARB is blind to the fact that neither the trucks nor the infrastructure is available to support such a timeline.

The industry is working diligently to achieve zero emissions, but it will take time for the technology and infrastructure to be developed to practically transition to ZEV trucks.
