Clean Truck Program
Truckers who serve port terminals are a vitally important link in Seattle’s seaport operations. The port’s Clean Truck Program aims to keep trucking partners in business while supporting clean air for our communities. As part of the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy, the ports of Seattle, Tacoma and Metro Vancouver adopted guidelines in 2008 for reducing the air emissions from trucks, in addition to ships and cargo handling equipment operating in and around our harbors.
Drayage Truck Scrapping and Replacement Program
The Port of Seattle launched a new truck scrapping and replacement program in May 2014. The program, which is partially funded by federal and state grants, will provide $20,000 to owners who scrap old drayage trucks and replace them with trucks with model-year 2007 or newer engines. The program is expected to run through mid-2015 or until funds are depleted. It is being carried out by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency in partnership with the Port of Seattle. The port also is investigating other financing and assistance programs to help truck owners meet the Clean Truck Program requirements.
In the first four months of operation, 35 trucks were scrapped and replaced, and 90 more applicants were pre-approved. Funding is still available for more than 50 trucks. There is no waiting list to apply for a $20,000 incentive. Download program brochure
A new EPA grant will be available in November 2014 to provide incentives for 40 additional trucks. This program provides 50 percent the replacement cost, capped at $30,000 for replacement trucks with a model-year 2010 or newer engine. A waiting list was created for this program in June 2014 and there are more than 40 names on the list. Interested truck owners may still add their names to the list. In the event that space becomes available, they will be notified by the ScRAPS 2 Office in the order received to submit an application.
