Cargo handling equipment is used to transfer goods or perform
maintenance and repair activities and includes equipment such as
yard trucks (hostlers), rubber-tired gantry cranes, top handlers,
side handlers, forklifts, and loaders.  The Regulation for Mobile

adopted in December 2005 to reduce diesel particulate matter in
communities located near ports and intermodal rail yards.
