The Harbour Commissions from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will both consider a resolution to approve a proposed clean truck rate between $5 and $70 per TEU.  Zero and near-zero emission trucks would be exempt as the fee which is expected to be implemented in the latter half of 2020 once the ultra-low NOx engine emission standard and mechanism to collect have been established. The Pacific Merchant Shipping Association (PMSA) says a study on the economic viability of the fee requires significantly more analysis before it is implemented by the ports and that the impact would be felt hardest by the low-value export commodities.  The Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) has established a goal of zero-emissions for drayage trucks serving the ports by 2035.
