APM Terminals Clean Truck Express

APM Terminals announces the launch of its Clean Truck Express lane at its Pier 400 Los Angeles terminal starting December 5th in support of sustainable transportation. This dedicated lane is exclusively for vehicles registered in the Port of Los Angeles Clean Truck Program and powered by battery electric, natural gas, or other zero-emission technologies.

By providing a dedicated lane for these trucks, APM Terminals aims to reduce gate-in times for customers, thereby minimizing energy consumption, promoting lower emissions, and improving operational efficiency. This approach reflects APM Terminal’s commitment to environmental stewardship and supporting its customers in achieving their sustainability goals.

With its goal to achieve net zero emissions by 2040, APM Terminals is committed to expanding access to sustainable logistics globally. Pier 400’s Clean Truck Express lane, first piloted by APM Terminals Gothenburg, underscores the terminal’s approach to anticipating the future of transportation and its dedication to a cleaner environment.

“This initiative is not just about reducing emissions; it’s about redefining industry standards and helping our customers and communities transition towards sustainable supply chains,” said Jon Poelma, Managing Director of APM Terminals Pier 400.

Collaborating for Environmental Impact and Customer Value

The express lane results from Pier 400’s collaborative effort with local trucking communities and industry leaders. Guests to the formal ribbon-cutting ceremony included representatives of Performance Team and HUDD brand with their growing fleet of Volvo and BYD Class 8 EV trucks and IMC, the largest marine drayage provider in the U.S.

“Congratulations to APM Terminals for being the first Marine Terminal Operator (MTO) in the San Pedro port complex to add an expedited service lane for Zero Emissions Vehicles!” said Jim Gillis, president of the Pacific Region, IMC. “We hope that other MTOs follow suit as we believe that aiding those truckers investing in zero emissions technologies will only accelerate the adoption of these vehicles, ultimately resulting in a cleaner environment for Southern California.”

With regulations set to prohibit diesel trucks from registering in the California Air Resources Board (CARB) system by January 2024 and the state’s target for 100% zero-emission drayage trucks by 2035, Pier 400 anticipates a near doubling of the number of certified clean trucks eligible for its Clean Truck Express lane by the end of 2024.

APM Terminals Pier 400 will review and look to potentially expand its express lane initiative after the pilot period is completed. Introducing these priority lanes is one small part of APM Terminal’s broader commitment to decarbonization and lifting the standard of responsibility to secure a sustainable future.
