Pilot program may reduce truck idling at ports of Los Angeles & Long Beach
12/11/2013

At the Harbor Trucking Association's December 12 meeting, trade industry leaders launched a pilot program that could change the way trucks & terminals operate at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. 

If successful, the program would help reduce the number of truck trips, save on fuel consumption and improve air quality, officials said.

Officials went live with the Freight Advanced Traveler Information Program, a $750,000 demonstration funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration that would allow drivers and schedulers to plan for container pickups based on real-time information.

The six-month project involves Yusen, a marine terminal at the Port of Los Angeles that handles about 1,400 containers a week, and a fleet of 50 trucks from Rancho Dominguez-based Port Logistics Group, which would be outfitted with systems to let drivers and schedulers know when drivers can arrive to pick up containers.  more>>>
