California Environmental Programs:
All Port trucks are Clean Air Certified
The Port of Long Beach's ambitious Clean Trucks Program has reduced air pollution from harbor trucks by more than 90 percent in a little over three years. In 2012, the program banned permanently the last remaining older, more polluting trucks from Port terminals. Today, virtually all of the 13,000 drayage trucks servicing the Port terminals are 2007 or newer mode

Certified Compliant with CARB
The regulation is projected to provide significant diesel PM and NOx emissions reductions that would have a substantial positive air quality impact throughout California. PM emissions are projected to be reduced by about 7 tons per day in 2014 and 3 tons per day in 2023, NOx emissions are projected to be reduced by about 88 tons per day in 2023. These reductions are critical to meeting federal clean air standards. The regulation would also reduce diesel PM emissions by the maximum level achievable from in-use trucks and buses.

The following are just a few of the areas where Estenson Logistics has taken the initiative and made substantial improvements. To reduce NOx emissions and reduce the gallons of diesel fuel used, Estenson Logistics is doing its part in controlling excessive fuel consumption or pollutants. Listed below are a few examples:
