NY-NJ drayage drivers oppose latest truck ban

May 17, 2019 —JOC.com

A proposal to update an anti-pollution measure at the Port of New York and New Jersey by banning truck engines from the model year 1996/1997 has stoked opposition from the Association of Bi-State Motor Carriers, which says the plan would hurt the drayage fleet’s ability to handle growing cargo volumes and make the port less competitive. The proposed rule, which would take effect August 1, 2020, prohibits any truck with a 1997 or older engine from entering any of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s (PANYNJ) container terminals. A second proposed rule would prevent from registering on the port Drayage Truck Registry any truck with an engine that does not meet the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) road emission standard for engine model year 2010, effective July 1.
