Port Reduces Truck Pollution by 90%
Launched in 2008, the Port of Long Beach's groundbreaking Clean Trucks Program (CTP) implemented a progressive ban on older heavy polluting diesel drayage trucks. In 2012, the CTP permanently banned the last remaining older, more polluting trucks from Port terminals. When the CTP was fully implemented in 2012, port truck emissions were reduced by more than 90 percent. Today there are over 22,000 drayage trucks available to service the Port terminals, over half of those trucks have 2010 or newer emission-compliant engines.
Commencing on Oct. 1, 2018, any new trucks registered in the Port Drayage Truck Registry (PDTR) must be model year 2014 or newer. Drayage trucks registered in the PDTR prior to Oct. 1, 2018, that are current on their annual registration fees as of Sept. 30, 2018 and are compliant with state law may continue to operate at the Port of Long Beach.
