October 29, 2019. Meeting the challenge to clean up some of the most polluted air in the United States, Southern California has hit a new milestone with over 100 trucks outfitted with the cleanest ultra low-NOx engines available now operating in the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach.
Visionary port trucking companies are leading the transformation from diesel to clean trucks that are equipped with the ultralow-NOx Cummins Westport (CWI) ISX12N engine and fueled with Clean Energy Fuels Corp. Redeem™ renewable natural gas (RNG), the cleanest fuel available for heavy-duty trucks. The Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP), adopted by the San Pedro Bay Ports in 2017, called for the transformation of trucking away from diesel and this change is now underway.
These leading companies include Overseas Freight, Total Transportation Services, Pacific 9 Transportation, 4 Gen Logistics, Orange Avenue Express, NFI industries, Green Fleet Systems, MDB Transportation, Green Trucking LLC, West Coast Trucking, and Tradelink Transportation.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has approved a $533 million plan for clean transportation investments which will promote clean vehicle technologies such as natural gas trucks.
