40% of short haul and drayage trucks on the road are zero emission

To support our call to action to ensure the I-710 Corridor is the first zero-emission goods movement corridor in the nation, LACI works with stakeholders in the drayage industry to advance battery-electric truck adoption at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach (collectively, the San Pedro Bay Ports)

This region is a gateway for goods entering California and the nation as a whole, with approximately forty percent of all the goods that enter the U.S. traveling through Southern California. The San Pedro Bay Ports are vital to the region’s economy, while also generating a significant amount of pollution that affects the neighboring communities, especially those along the I-710 Corridor. To ensure steady progress to the Advanced Clean Fleets requirement of 100% zero emissions drayage trucks by 2035, TEP has worked to develop interim targets and maintain momentum.

Current Value: 1.27%

Goal: 40%

Progress to Target


ZE deployments are in the very early stages for the Ports

Recent Progress and Milestones

The California Energy Commission’s 2022-2023 Investment Plan Update for the Clean Transportation Program outlines $250 million in funding specifically for drayage trucks to support the state’s 2035 100% zero emission drayage truck goals.

Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach committed to dedicating a majority of 2023-2024 Clean Truck Fund to infrastructure.

Partner Progress and Milestones

LACI has secured $10.5 million in public funding from Metro, POLA, MSRC, and Congresswoman Nanette Barragan for a drayage truck charging depot in Wilmington.

How we measure progress

The San Pedro Bay Ports release a monthly report on the makeup and operations of trucks in their drayage registry, found here. LACI uses registration data available from EMFAC to count the proportion of other trucks in Los Angeles County.
