Unenforced emissions regs ‘absolutely’ constraining drayage market

November 12, 2021

Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka would like to see more truckers taking on an unprecedented freight surge at the nation’s busiest port.

The problem however is that the port is calling for increasingly tough zero-emission truck policies which, according to a major port player, are already hampering drayage capacity even though these clean air polices haven’t taken effect.

“The new Clean Air Action Plan, even though it’s not even being enforced yet, is absolutely keeping a lid on drayage capacity,” NFI’s senior vice president of port services Aaron Brown said this week during the company’s 2022 Supply Chain Outlook Webinar.
