THE ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles will soon deploy new zero-emissions vehicles at some of their terminals, as they continue testing technology that will help them become more eco-friendly, reports the Long Beach Press Telegram.

Officials at the twin port complex have made it their goal to fully transition from diesel-powered to zero-emission cargo handling equipment by 2030.



The Port of Long Beach unveiled a new battery-electric yard tractor during an evening ceremony at the Civic Centre. That tractor - the term for the vehicle portion of tractor-trailer will carry cargo containers from the Long Beach Container Terminal, in Pier E, to the rail yard.



It is one of five vehicles the port will deploy over the next month for a two-year testing period, thanks to a US$5.3 million grant from the California Air Resources Board, officials said.
