The San Pedro Bay ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have invited the public to comment on a draft 2021 feasibility assessment of cleaner drayage truck technologies needed to help the ports reduce air pollution and reach the ambitious zero-emissions goals adopted in the 2017 Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) Update. Feedback may be submitted through Sept. 27.
The CAAP aims to arrive at zero-emissions from trucks by 2035 and zero-emissions from terminal equipment by 2030 in the area. As part of this strategy, the ports conduct feasibility assessments every three years, seeking input about drayage trucks and terminal equipment, to help guide the ports’ approach in meeting those goals.
The draft 2021 assessment, which builds upon the inaugural 2018 assessment, examines the current state of technology, operational characteristics, economic considerations, infrastructure availability and commercial readiness related to zero-emissions and low-emissions drayage trucks.
The draft 2021 feasibility assessment is available on the CAAP website. Comments can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach are the two largest ports in the nation, first and second respectively, and combined are the ninth-largest port complex in the world. Trade that flows through the San Pedro Bay ports complex generates more than 3 million jobs nationwide.
