A registration notice will be sent out for that training soon.

Date: November 30, 2023
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Location: Zoom Webinar
After registering for the event using the link above, participants will have the option to participate via Zoom or access the meeting by telephone with a dial-in number. CARB staff highly recommends participating using the Zoom Desktop or Mobile App for best quality and interactive participation.
This free online training is open to the public and will provide an overview of the drayage truck requirements in the ACF regulation and outline the upcoming compliance requirements. The focus of the webinar will be solely on drayage trucks.
We anticipate a large number of participants and questions. To facilitate an efficient discussion, we request that questions be submitted in advance. You can return to this link and continue to submit additional questions. Staff will review the questions, compile those that are similar and pertinent to the drayage regulation and provide answers during the webinar. While we will not be able to answer detailed questions specific to your fleet only, we will provide information on how to get individualized fleet assistance. If time allows and depending on the number of participants, we may answer clarifying questions at the end of the presentation. Please submit your questions. Questions can be submitted until Sunday, November 26, 2023.
CARB has several resources available that will help prepare you for this training:
• Advanced Clean Fleets Regulation Overview
• Drayage Trucks at Seaports and Railyards
• Drayage Resources
• ZEV TruckStop Webpage
We encourage you to review these documents beforehand to ensure the most collaborative and informative experience. The Advanced Clean Fleets Regulation Overview fact sheet will give you some basic information on the different components of the ACF regulation. Please note that your vehicle or fleet may be affected by several other CARB regulations that are currently in place. Visit our CARB TruckStop page to learn more about new California requirements for heavy-duty vehicles.
To meet California’s health-based air quality standards and greenhouse gas emission reduction goals, the trucks and buses operated in the state and the fuel they use must be transformed away from petroleum. California is working to meet the Governor’s goal of one hundred percent zero-emission transportation where feasible by 2045.
The ACF regulation applies to fleets performing drayage operations, those owned by State, local, and federal government agencies, and high priority fleets. High priority fleets are entities that own, operate, or direct at least one vehicle in California, and that have either $50 million or more in gross annual revenues, or that own, operate, or have common ownership or control of a total of 50 or more vehicles (excluding light-duty package delivery vehicles). The regulation affects medium- and heavy-duty on-road vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 8,500 pounds, off-road yard tractors, and light-duty mail and package delivery vehicles.
More information can be found on CARB’s Advanced Clean Fleets website.
