Goods Movement, Heavy Duty Transportation, and Clean Ports Sector Action Group

The 2017 volunteers to assist with heavy duty, goods movement and clean ports activities were combined into one Heavy Duty, Goods Movement and Clean Ports SAG which includes sustainable freight interests, an important sector for a wide array of CHBC members. The SAG is led by Chair Jim Petrecky, Plug Power and assisted by staff member Cory Shumaker.

ARB continues to implement a number of competitive procurements to address the drive to zero emission trucks and equipment, as well as cleaner ports and other efforts to address the environmental challenges of disadvantaged communities that often exist around ports and freight distribution centers. Staff will continue to increase relationship building with key stakeholder organizations and one of the key activities will be conducting with members various workshops throughout 2017.
