On July 17, 2015 Governor Brown issued Executive Order B-32-15 which directs the Secretary of the California State Transportation Agency, the Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency, and the Secretary of the Natural Resources Agency to lead other relevant State departments including the California Air Resources Board, the California Department of Transportation, the California Energy Commission, and the Governorís Office of Business and Economic Development to improve freight efficiency, transition to zero-emission technologies, and increase competitiveness of Californiaís freight system.

The integrated action plan, the California Sustainable Freight Strategy, will also identify State policies, programs, and investments to achieve these targets. The plan will be informed by existing State agency strategies, including California Freight Mobility Plan, Sustainable Freight Pathways to Zero and Near-Zero Emissions Discussion Document, and Integrated Energy Policy Report, as well as broad stakeholder input.
