Ports of Long Beach and L.A. trucking company switches to natural gas engines


In an effort to raise awareness of the importance of natural and renewable gas trucking to help improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions at the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, one of the port’s leading providers of logistic services announced last week it was replacing its entire diesel trucking fleet with near-zero emission natural gas trucks.

Total Transportation Service Inc. made the announcement in conjunction with the non-profit Coalition for Clean Air.
