LA, LB ports release final version of proposed CAAP update

The final version of the Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) update, which sets North America’s two largest seaports on a path toward zero-emissions operations, follows the July release of the draft document.

   This final version of the 2017 San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) Update, which incorporates comments and changes and is scheduled to be considered for approval in a joint public meeting of the two ports’ harbor commissions, was released Oct. 23 by the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
   The final version of the CAAP Update, which sets North America’s two largest seaports on a path toward zero-emissions operations, follows the July release of the draft document. It would be the first update to the plan since 2010 and second since the original was approved by the ports’ harbor boards in 2006.
   The 2017 CAAP Update document, fact sheet and responses to comments are available on both port websites and cleanairactionplan.org.
   Strategies outlined in the draft plan include phasing in clean engine standards for new trucks entering the port drayage registries starting in 2018, with the goal of transitioning to a zero-emissions drayage fleet by 2035; and expanding use of on-dock rail, with the goal of eventually moving half of all inbound cargo leaving the ports by rail.
   Other proposed components include developing a universal truck appointment system for the entire complex with the goal of minimizing truck turn times, and developing infrastructure plans that support terminal equipment electrification and alternative fuels use.
   Staff from both ports developed the 2017 CAAP Update over the past two years, and held more than 70 meetings with industry, regulatory agency and community stakeholders, plus hosted three public workshops.
   The joint public meeting between the two port boards is scheduled for 8:30 am Thurs., Nov. 2, at the Crowne Plaza Los Angeles Harbor Hotel, 601 S. Palos Verdes St., San Pedro, 90731. The meeting will be broadcast live online at polb.com/webcast and at portoflosangeles.org.
