Clean Trucks to Be Discussed in Long Beach

The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will discuss the Clean Truck Program Rate at a public workshop in Long Beach, Calif. on Dec. 18.

The rate proposal – to be imposed on trucks moving containers to and from marine terminals – is being considered in 2020 as a way to speed up the San Pedro Bay truck fleet’s conversion to cleaner trucks. It is a component of the 2017 Clean Air Action Plan Update.

The workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, in the Bob Foster Civic Chambers at Long Beach City Hall, 411 W. Ocean Blvd. in Long Beach, Calif.
