sfti -- Draft Freight Hub Survey for Truck Stops Released for Public Comment Posted: 20 Jan 2017 16:43:42
The Air Resources Board (ARB) staff has released the Draft Freight Hub Survey for Truck Stops for public comment. The Draft Freight Hub Survey for Truck Stops is the first in a series of six freight hub surveys that will be released by ARB this year. Each of the surveys will undergo a public comment period before being finalized. The types of freight hubs being surveyed during this effort include: truck stops, border crossings, rail yards, airports, seaports, and warehouses and distribution centers. The purpose of these surveys is to collect specific facility and equipment information from California based freight hubs. The data gathered from these surveys will help ARB staff better understand the activity that occurs at freight hubs in California, assess the potential for emission reductions, inform potential strategies for reducing those emissions, and direct funding assistance efforts. Please see the Program website at https://www.arb.ca.gov/gmp/sfti/sfdatacollect.htm to get more information, submit comments, and view the surveys as they become available. Background: On July 17, 2015, Governor Brown issued Executive Order B-32-15 which directs State agencies to improve freight efficiency, transition to zero-emission technologies, and increase the competitiveness of California’s freight system. To support this effort and other air quality, climate, and sustainability goals, Air Resources Board (ARB) staff has identified the need to collect specific facility and equipment information from California based freight hubs. If you have any questions regarding the draft freight hub surveys, please contact Ugo Eke, Air Resources Engineer, at (916) 322-7298 or via email at email@example.com.
