Issue

By January 1, 2019, all drayage trucks transporting shipping containers to or from a high-volume port must meet the 2007 truck engine standard adopted by the EPA. High-volume ports are those ports whose total tonnage of domestic and foreign waterborne trade, as measured by the BTS, exceeded 20 million tons during the most recent year statistics were available. By January 1, 2020, high-volume ports must develop and submit to the Legislature a plan that provides a roadmap for transitioning the fleet of drayage trucks serving high-volume ports towards using only zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) by January 1, 2035.
