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.

Currently, trucks entering container terminals must have a model-year 1994 or newer engine, have a valid Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag, and be registered in the Port of Seattle Drayage Truck Registry.

For the next phase of the port’s Clean Truck Program, drayage trucks entering container terminals will need to have model-year 2007 or newer engines by January 1, 2018. To help truck owners meet this requirement, the port and the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency launched ScRAPS 2 (Seaport Truck Scrappage and Replacements for Air in Puget Sound). ScRAPS 2 is funded by state and federal grants.

ScRAPS 2 Truck Replacement Program

It just got easier to qualify for ScRAPS 2

As of October 12, 2015, up to 100 trips to container terminals in Tacoma can count toward the 200 total trips to Northwest Seaport Alliance terminals required to qualify for ScRAPS 2. A minimum of 100 trips to terminals in Seattle are required as part of the 200 trip total.
In August the ports of Tacoma and Seattle formed the Northwest Seaport Alliance to jointly manage marine cargo facilities. Find more information on the Alliance at
