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
The ScRAPS2 program currently does not have funds available, and is not accepting new applications.
Please continue to check the Clean Trucks website for any updates.
As of May 16, 2016, trucks with combined total of 200 or more trips annually to The Northwest Seaport Alliance (Port of Seattle and/or Port of Tacoma terminals) can now qualify. Owners may have any combination of trips to the two ports, as long as they have made 200 or more in the last year.
In August 2015 the ports of Tacoma and Seattle formed the Northwest Seaport Alliance to jointly manage marine cargo facilities. Find more information on the Alliance at www.nwseaportalliance.com.
