Mid-Atlantic states' unique plan to replace region's dirtiest trucks

he impact of the EPA grant.

As an example of the private enthusiasm the organizers hope to tap, Throwe points to today's announcement by the EPA and the Coalition for Responsible Transportation (CRT), whose members make up some of the largest shippers and distributers from around the country. The CRT will contribute financially to help extend EPA dray replacements nationwide.

"Businesses along the supply chain understand that they and their employees benefit by maintaining as clean a footprint as possible," Throwe says. "Helping truck drivers - mainly from small businesses - to afford cleaner, greener trucks is a goal the private sector can embrace."

"This is a great example of how a government and industry partnership should work. The program goals are admirable - reducing emissions from mobile sources at the Mid-Atlantic ports to promote clean air for everyone's benefit, and the government is giving private industry the tools needed to achieve those objectives," says Louis Campion, president of the Maryland Motor Truck Association, Inc.

The Mid-Atlantic program is based on other clean truck efforts springing up around the country, including programs at the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle, Tacoma, Virginia, Houston; and more recently the Port of New York and New Jersey.

Of all these programs, the Mid-Atlantic is the only one using a multi-state collaboration designed to boost the level of financial support to truckers.

The Port of Virginia was the first to open its own dray replacement initiative - the Green Operator Program - to the Mid-Atlantic partnership (in March 2011). The Port is leveraging the new regional effort with a $300,000 contribution. Virginia has a waiting list of approximately 150 applicants, with 24 applications ready to receive approval for funding.

The Port of Baltimore, Maryland anticipates contributing financially as well. Over 75 short-haul truckers opera
