The Harbor Trucking Association is forging a new partnership with Clean Energy Fuels Corp. to be the exclusive provider of clean transportation fuels to the association member companies at the southern California ports.
Both HTA and Clean Energy say they have been leaders in responsible environmental stewardship that won’t create too much of a burden on the companies or drivers that make up the port drayage industry.
As part of this partnership, Clean Energy will provide specialized clean fuel programs to HTA members as the industry prepares for the implementation of the newest version of the Clean Air Action Plan adopted by the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
In addition to a clean fuels program, Clean Energy will provide valuable resources in the form of workshops on the latest programs for clean technology funding, as well as aid in the grant writing needs for company fleets and individual owner-operators looking to upgrade their equipment.
Clean Energy will also show how technology for near-zero technology vehicles has continued to evolve by partnering with HTA member companies to get drivers behind the wheel of demonstration trucks that offer the newest technology available.
Finally, both entities have made the commitment to shape policy that helps get clean technology funds into the hands of those that most need the assistance. The partnership will consist of an advocacy effort that will help get the necessary assistance to fleets and drivers that want to go green and transition out older equipment.
