This means all trucks, not just drayage trucks.


JANUARY 1, 2012

Beginning January 1, 2012, the final phase of the Drayage Truck ban will take effect at the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach marine terminals. Port drayage trucks equipped with Engine Years 2006 and older will no longer be permitted access.

Be prepared for the January 1, 2012 ban date and make sure your port drayage truck meets the following Clean Truck Program requirements:

Truck Ban Requirements

  • Drayage trucks with engines that do not meet the 2007 Federal heavy-duty emissions standards will be banned from marine terminal access on January 1, 2012.

  • This means that drayage trucks equipped with engine years 2006 or older will be banned from marine terminal entry on January 1, 2012.

  • Drayage trucks equipped with engine years 1994 to 2003 are also banned from terminal entry even if they have been retrofitted with a level 3 verified diesel emission control system (VDECS).  Retrofitted trucks will only have marine terminal access through December 31, 2011.

  • Drayage trucks with 2004 to 2006 engine years will only have access to marine terminals through December 31, 2011.

  • ONLY drayage trucks with 2007 and newer engine years will have access to marine terminals starting on January 1, 2012.

Verify Truck Engine Year

  • Licensed Motor Carriers and Independent Owner Operators with 2007 model year trucks not previously inspected must have their truck engine’s model year verified at the Truck Access Center (TAC).   This requirement is necessary because the Port Drayage Truck Registry (PDTR) automatically assumes that 2007 model year trucks have engines from the previous year (2006).

  • Visit the TAC today and make sure your truck has the correct engine year entered into the PDTR.

The Clean Truck Fee Expires on December 31, 2011

  • The Clean Truck Fee (CTF) of $35 per loaded twenty-foot equivalent container unit will expire and will no longer be collected starting January 1, 2012.

Register Your Truck in the PTDR, eModal’s Trucker Check and the State DTR

All port drayage trucks must be registered in the PDTR, eModal’s Trucker Check, and the State DTR to secure access to the marine terminals in both the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach.  Failure to register in all three will result in the truck being denied access to the ports’ marine terminals. 

For more information, including operating hours and directions to the TAC, please call the Clean Trucks Program Helpline at (866) 721 - 5686.
