Goods Movement, Heavy Duty Transportation, and Clean Ports Sector Action Group

The 2016 volunteers to assist with goods movement and clean ports activities were combined into one Goods Movement and Clean Ports SAG which includes sustainable freight interests, an important sector for a wide array of CHBC members. The SAG is led by vice chair Pinakin Patel, FuelCell Energy.

ARB continues to implement a number of competitive procurements to address the drive to zero emission trucks, cleaner ports and other efforts to address the environmental challenges of disadvantaged communities that often exist around ports and freight distribution centers. Staff will continue to increase it relationship building with key stakeholder organizations and one of the key activities will be conducting with members a Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in Clean Ports Symposium in the first half of 2016.

Specific Actions
