Port of Hueneme Pass MOU for Use of Electric Terminal Tractors

January 13, 2022

On Dec. 20, the Port of Hueneme and the Oxnard Harbor District board voted to approve a Memorandum of Understanding with the port’s stevedores authorizing the use of two new electric terminal tractors owned by the port.

They are funded by the Zero and Near Zero-Emission for Freight Facilities grant from the California Air Resources Board, which the port applied to in 2018 with the Port of Los Angeles and other partners.

As a part of the grant, the port will also take part in an initiative to test the deployment of ten hydrogen fuel cell trucks in the coming year.

The trucks are currently in development but will be deployed throughout the L.A. basin to test the hydrogen fuel cells’ feasibility rather than the traditional diesel model.
