Drayage trucks entering Port of Seattle container terminals will need to have model-year 2007 or newer engines by January 1, 2018!
Puget Sound Clean Air Agency’s ScRAPS2 program may be able to help you upgrade to a newer truck. The next phase goal for the Port of Seattle’s Clean Truck program is for all drayage trucks entering the port’s container terminals to have model-year 2007 or newer engines or meet 2007 federal emissions standards. The requirement is aimed at reducing air emissions from port-related activities. To help truck owners meet the requirement, the port and the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency launched ScRAPS 2 (Seaport Truck Scrappage and Replacements for Air in Puget Sound 2) in May 2014. The program is funded by state and federal grants and provides $20,000 to $27,000 to eligible owners who scrap old trucks and buy newer ones that meet the standard.
To enter the program, truck drivers must have made 200 trips to the Northwest Seaport Alliance (Ports of Seattle and Tacoma) in the last 12 months with Seattle terminals making up at least 100 of those trips.
