The public has until April 29 to weigh in on a draft document by the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach that looks at the feasibility of new and emerging cargo-handling equipment technology. 

The ports extended the deadline to April 29 to gather more feedback on the draft, which further examines the original 2018 assessment and looks into the “current state of technology, operational characteristics, economic considerations, infrastructure availability and commercial readiness relating to cleaner cargo-handling equipment,” according to the ports. 

The draft is part of larger efforts by the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to reduce air emissions and achieve their zero-emissions goals outlined in the 2017 Clean Air Action Plan Update, including a goal to reach zero-emissions terminal equipment by 2030 and zero-emissions trucks by 2035. 

The draft is available on the Clean Air Action Plan website at
