ATA Sues Over Clean Trucks Program At Ports
The American Trucking Associations filed suit in the U.S. District Court in California challenging the port â€śConcession Plansâ€ť as approved by the Cities of Los Angeles and Long Beach and their harbor commissions (PDF of complaint).
The trade group estimates over 10,000 independent truckers will be prohibited from the Los Angeles port, which is banning independent truckers as of October 1 to tighten control over emissions, Reuters reports.
By October, trucking companies must provide information on operational procedures before gaining access to the two Southern California ports. Pre-1989 model trucks will be banned this fall and trucks older than 2007 models will be banned in 2012.
