California’s regulators, including the California Air Resources Board (CARB), seem to think motor carriers and drivers are one-size-fits-all. That could not be further from the truth.

Their upcoming Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) rule will require any new truck entered into the drayage registry come January 1, 2024 to be zero emission (ZEV).

CARB thinks they are doing the industry a favor by “allowing” current trucks in the registry to continue serving the state’s ports until they are 13 years old or have 800,000 miles, whichever comes first. This thinking ignores the fact that motor carriers and individual drivers upgrade their trucks regularly. It also prohibits new entrants into the drayage industry as the trucks would have to be ZEV.
