The Port of New Orleans launched the Clean Truck Replacement Incentive Program (Clean TRIP) in 2016, offering incentives for voluntary replacement of drayage trucks that service cargo terminals and warehouses along the Mississippi River and the Inner Harbor. Clean TRIP enables truck and fleet owners to voluntarily invest in cleaner air through early truck replacement with cleaner models. The Port has captured momentum from Clean TRIP to initiate community dialogue around air quality and opportunities for improvement, and to catalyze port industry efforts under the broader Port of New Orleans Clean Air Program.
To date, 58 short-haul drayage trucks have been replaced with cleaner burning engines, reducing fine particulate emissions from these trucks by 96 percent, which is equal to taking 73,000 cars off the road.
This program is made possible with funding by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality. The Port of New Orleans received competitive grants to provide truck replacement rebates supporting our local Port trucking industry, helping reduce local air emissions, and increasing reliability and efficiency of on-road goods movement.
