Drayage Truck Rule
As of January 1, 2012, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Drayage Truck Regulation is in effect. The regulation impacts owners of drayage trucks. According to the regulation, all drayage trucks entering the Port must be registered in the CARB Drayage Truck Registry and meet specific air emissions standards. The Rule applies to all Class 7 and Class trucks that visit ports and railyards in California.
In December 2007, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved a regulation to reduce emissions from drayage trucks at California’s ports and intermodal rail yards. According to the regulation, all drayage trucks entering the Port must be registered in the CARB Drayage Truck Registry and meet specific air emissions standards. All non-exempt on-road class 7 and 8 diesel-fueled trucks not registered in the CARB drayage truck registry are subject to fines from CARB.
On Wednesday, November 9, 2011, the Office of Administrative Law approved amendments to the Drayage Truck Regulation. These amendments became effective immediately. The two key changes to the regulation are:
- Class 7 trucks are now Drayage Trucks with regulatory requirements.
