Long Beach, Los Angeles approve Clean Truck Fund spending plans

[ April 6, 2022   //   ]

The Harbor Commissions of the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have each adopted spending plans for the Clean Truck Fund (CTF) rate program, a key component of the ports’ Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP). The plans, approved separately by each port, target the development and deployment of zero-emission (ZE) trucks and infrastructure, and move the two ports closer to their CAAP goal of being serviced by a 100% zero-emission drayage truck fleet by 2035.
Under the CTF program, starting April 1 the Port of Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles will begin collecting a rate of $10 per twenty-foot equivalent unit on loaded drayage trucks entering or leaving their container terminals. The program is expected to generate up to $90 million from the San Pedro Bay ports in its first year. Exemptions to the CTF rate will be provided for containers hauled by zero-emission trucks; containers hauled by low-nitrogen oxide-emitting (low-NOx) trucks will receive limited-time exemptions from the CTF rate.
