Clean Diesel

Before the new technologies of the Hydrogen / Electric Engine and Liquid Natural Gas Engines, the first step in transforming TTSI to a green fleet were clean diesel trucks. Extremely powerful with significantly less emissions than standard diesel trucks.

From Strategy to Reality - A Timeline for Sustainability

TTSI's journey from the old standard to leading the way to an emission-free future.

TTSI began its sustainability journey in 2007 by pledging to convert it's entire fleet to CAAP (Clean Air Action Plan) provisions. On May 22 2008, we took delivery of the first 8 Clean LNG Trucks, and by July 2011 had purchased 49 LNG Trucks. As an influencer in the transportation community, TTSI helped form the Coalition for Responsible Transportation who included beneficial cargo owners and transportation companies like TTSI. This coalition used TTSI's framework as a starting point to encourage the move to sustainability and more solutions in the future.

OLD STANDARD

Dirty Trucks

Prior to the implementation of the CAAP, trucks that transported containers in and out of the port complex were much older trucks with little to no emission standards.

A NEW START

California Air Quality Awards Honoree Vic La Rosa/TTSI, Inc.

TTSI is proud to announce President Vic La Rosa is a California Air Quality Award Honoree. Vic's commitment to environmental sustainability has always been a top priority, and he's set the ambitious goal of converting the entire fleet to zero or near zero-emission vehicles by 2020. This is a sharp contrast to the 97% of heavy-duty trucks on the road being diesel or gasoline. We're already well on our way.

"We’re going to clean up the trucks that use the ports, rail yards, and warehouses, and Vic is the guy who’s making that happen."
-  Joe Lyou, President & CEO, Coalition for Clean Air
