CIA is 100% Compliant
CIA is already fully compliant. We have a fleet of 100% State Compliant trucks for all of our Intermodal and Harbor Ops.

The Drayage Truck Regulation is part of the Air Resources Board's (ARB) ongoing efforts to reduce PM and NOx emissions from diesel-fueled engines and improve air quality associated with goods movement. In addition, this regulation also provides green house gas benefits and is designed to support local emissions reduction goals such as the Clean Air Action Plan by the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and the Comprehensive Truck Management Plan by the Port of Oakland.
