The Port of Los Angeles has issued a Request For Proposals as it looks for one or more teams of trucking companies and truck manufacturers to demonstrate zero-emissions short-haul drayage trucks.
They’re offering up to $300,000 per truck toward the cost of 10 zero-emissions trucks and related infrastructure, with $3 million total in grant funding available.
Teams submitting proposals must consist of at least one licensed motor carrier and one heavy-duty truck original equipment manufacturer, and the project will test the capabilities of current model zero-emissions drayage trucks in port operations within a radius of about 25 miles or less.
Proposals will be accepted through 3 p.m. on Jan. 4, 2022, and more than one proposal may be awarded a grant.
Project details, proposal requirements, demonstration guidelines, grant information and evaluation criteria are available online.
