Port of Los Angeles-Long Beach: Clean Truck Fund Fee Starts April 1, 2022

The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will start collecting the $10 per TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) Clean Truck Fee on loaded import and export container cargo moving in or out of terminals on Friday April 1st, 2022. 

This is part of the San Pedro Bay environmental initiative to meet a zero-emissions trucking at the port complex goal by 2036.  The Clean Truck Fund (CTF) was created to help fund and incentivize the transition to cleaner trucks and the development of zero-emissions technology. 

Exemptions will be provided for containers hauled by zero-emissions trucks or low-nitrogen oxide-emitting trucks that have registered in the Port Drayage Truck Registry and have completed inspection.  

Fee collection will be handled by PortCheck and the web portal will be connected to the existing Pier Pass system starting March 21, 2022.  It is the responsibility of the beneficial cargo owner (BCO) or authorized agent to pay the CTF rate.  Each port’s tariff includes a provision prohibiting the CTF rate being paid by trucker drivers.
