Devine Blue Trucks lining next to colorful containers at the port of oakland

CARB: Back in 2007, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) adopted the Drayage Truck Regulation and Truck & Bus Rule banning pre-2010 trucks from all of California’s ports and roadways effective January 1, 2023.

Up next, the Advanced Clean Fleet proposal which would require any new truck deployed into the drayage arena effective January 1, 2024 be zero-emissions. Any existing truck deployed in drayage and actively transacting containers at the state’s marine and rail facilities would be allowed to continue to do so until the truck is 18 years old or has 800,000 miles. After such time/mileage, the truck must be replaced with a zero-emission truck. By 2035, all drayage trucks will be required to be zero-emission vehicles.

AB5: The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) has filed for an injunction against California Law AB5, which effectively bans entrepreneurial, independent truck drivers from doing business in the state.

OOIDA has filed their injunction based on AB5 being in violation of the Commerce Clause. The organization is seeking to protect independent drivers conducting inter-state commerce or who spend less than 50% of their time in California.
