For Southern California ports, truck parking and port access represent challenges and opportunities in the complicated nexus of carrier, operational and terminal access issues. Nearly 14,000 truck drivers haul cargo from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach which handles 40 percent of US imports. Truck operators are experiencing parking challenges and traffic restrictions while warehouse and distribution centers face increasing land value escalation. 1200 motor carriers are signed up with the ports through the Clean Truck Program designed to make port and terminal access more efficient with fewer emissions. Smart public private partnerships offer solutions.

The West Coast Corridor Coalition’s (WCCC) “Clean, Green and Smart” research project is led by Caltrans, the Transportation Sustainability Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Cascadia Center in Seattle, WA with primary funding from the FHWA Multi-State Corridor Operations and Management (MCOM) program. The goal of the Clean, Green and Smart Corridor development project is to create a stronger understanding of goods movement and the impact of smart truck parking and port access along the West Coast.
