The California Trucking Association (CTA) filed a federal lawsuit against the California Air Resources Board (CARB) seeking an injunction against the implementation of CARB’s Advanced Clean Fleet (ACF) regulation.

The ACF regulation requires medium and heavy duty trucks added to the state’s drayage truck registry be a zero emission vehicle (ZEV) starting in January 2024. “Legacy” trucks which are currently registered and active in intermodal drayage can continue to haul containers to/from the state’s ocean and rail facilities until the end of their useful life. CARB defines useful life as 13 years or 800,000 miles, whichever comes later but no longer than 18 years.

ACF also requires all trucks sold in the state to be ZEV by 2036 and all trucks on the roadways to be ZEV by 2042.

The CTA’s lawsuit outlines ACF’s conflicts with and violations of federal law, including the Federal Clean Air Act and the Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act (F4A).
