Truck drivers and others can enroll in certifications and learn about new regulations required to work at the San Pedro Bay ports complex at a one-stop event at the Port of Long Beach scheduled for October 17 and 18.
The event will allow truckers to enroll with the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC), obtain radiofrequency ID tags (RFID) and sign up for the Port’s Truck Alert traffic notification system. Additionally, representatives from the California Air Resources Board will be available to provide information about the Advanced Clean Fleets regulation, requiring any new drayage trucks registered after Jan. 1, 2024, to be zero-emissions.
The Port of Long Beach is hosting the event in partnership with CARB, the Transportation Security Administration and the identity certification company IDEMIA.
The event is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 17 and Wednesday, Oct. 18 at the Port of Long Beach Terminal Access Center, 1265 Harbor Ave., Long Beach (southwest corner of Harbor Avenue and West Anaheim Street). Free tacos will be available to participants from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, while supplies last. This will be the final Help for Truckers event for the year.
