lalb-clean-air-action-plan-2017Back in 2006, the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach announced their joint Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) with the goal of reducing emission levels for trucks, yard equipment and ships.  The ports differed on the subject of Los Angeles’ requirement that all truck drivers serving their port complex be employees rather than independent owner-operators.  The American Trucking Associations (ATA) sued the port on the grounds it violated federal law (Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act – F4A) and won in the US Supreme Court in 2013.

 

Fast forward, the ports have announced an update to their plan.  CAAP 2017 will require further emission reductions and the use of zero-emission vehicles (which are not even feasible yet).  Some of the plan highlights are:

  • Phase in clean engine standards for trucks and transition to zero-emission drayage trucks by 2035.
  • Transition to zero-emission yard equipment by 2030.
  • Expand the use of on-dock rail with a goal of 50% of all inbound cargo leaving by rail.
  • Develop charging standards for electric cargo-handling equipment.
  • Explore short-haul rail, staging yards, truck appointment systems, off-terminal queueing, intelligent transportation systems and other strategies for enhancing efficiencies across the supply chain.
  • Develop infrastructure plans to support the electrification and use of alternative fuels for terminal equipment.
