LA/LB Look at Handling Technology

By Karen Robes Meeks

The ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles are seeking public input on a draft assessment of new cargo-handling equipment technology, which will look at the current state of technology, operational characteristics, economic considerations, infrastructure availability and commercial readiness relating to cleaner cargo-handling equipment.

This assessment is part of a larger effort to lower air pollution and meet major zero-emissions goals set by the Clean Air Action Plan.

The plan calls for terminal equipment and trucks to reach zero-emissions status by 2030 and 2035, respectively.
