Freight Hub Data Collection

What's New

The Air Resources Board staff has posted the Freight Hub Survey for Truck Stops below.

The Freight Hub Survey for Truck Stops (Truck Stop Survey) is the first in a series of six freight hub surveys that will be released by ARB this year. Staff has designed this survey to gather specific facility and equipment information from California based truck stops. The data gathered in this survey will help ARB staff better understand the activity that occurs at truck stops in California, assess the potential for emission reductions, and assist with the development of strategies for potentially reducing emissions at trucks stops. The information will also be used to determine the costs associated with any potential actions and direct future funding assistance efforts.

Surveys may be completed online or on paper. Please click here to access the online version of the survey.
Hardcopies of all surveys should be mailed to:

A public workshop was held on November 1, 2016 to discuss a strategy to expand advanced clean technologies in last-mile delivery and in local trucks and data collection efforts to support this and other freight-related strategies.


The Sustainable Freight Pathways to Zero and Near-Zero Emissions Discussion Document and California Sustainable Freight Action Plan include Freight Hub Data Collection as a State agency action for development and implementation over the next few years. In support of the Sustainable Freight effort and other air quality, climate, toxic exposure, and sustainability goals, ARB staff is evaluating potential methods to transition to a more efficient and less polluting freight transport system. As part of this evaluation, ARB staff has identified the need for specific facility and equipment information from California based freight hubs and is developing freight facility surveys for the following:

  • Truck Stops
  • Border Crossings
  • Rail Yards
  • Airports
  • Seaports
  • Warehouse/Distribution Centers
In addition to the freight facility survey, data collection may occur through various mechanisms, such as existing facility reporting requirements, funded academic research, and analysis of currently accessible data. The information collected will support planning efforts for the freight sector in order to increase efficiency, reduce emissions, and further reduce health risks.
