With this Request for Proposals (RFP), the Port of Long Beach (the Port) has the following objectives:
1. Identify trucks that address the Port’s emission reduction objectives;
2. Obtain firm commitments as to production, prices and service for these trucks;
3. Identify a range of trucks with good emission reduction capabilities at good prices; and
4. Make this range of options available to truck purchasers who wish to participate in port drayage.
Although the Port, the state and others will be providing grants and loan funding through the CTP to facilitate the purchase of cleaner trucks for use in port drayage, the Port will not be buying the trucks.
