Transportation Insurance Update: August 2023.
SWAN News Welcome,

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) recently passed the Advanced Clean Fleets Regulation (ACF), a medium and heavy-duty zero-emission fleet regulation. The goal of this regulation is to achieve a zero-emission truck and bus California fleet.

The regulation affects medium- and heavy-duty on-road vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) greater than 8,500 pounds, off-road yard tractors, and light-duty mail and package delivery vehicles.

Starting in 2024, only zero-emission trucks may be added to drayage service, and legacy vehicles must be removed from drayage service at the end of their useful life. This applies to Class 7-8 on-road trucks operating at California's seaports and intermodal railyards.

Interested in transitioning to an electric fleet but don't know where to start? Southern California Edison has prepared a go-to resource giving fleets helpful insight as they prepare for EVs - click here to download.

Additionally, staying ahead of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) changes in maintenance grade guidelines can ensure your fleet is moving rapidly through checkpoints and not pulled aside for a 30 minute inspection.

Regulations like these can sound startling, inopportune, and expensive! Please know the SWAN team is well-versed in these updates and at your service to help you navigate them as quickly and smoothly as possible.

This month, we feature SWAN Account Manager Michael Goldsmith. Thanks to his extensive experience and certifications around industry regulations, he can help you keep your fleet active and growing.

In September, SWAN's Director of Transportation Marc Crawford will be on-site at two of the transportation industry's premiere events. Learn more about these events and how to connect with Marc below.

We thank you for your continued patronage and support. If you are a SWAN client and we have helped you and your business, we would greatly appreciate the gift of your trusted referrals. We have enjoyed building our community with you and look forward to ensuring our friends and family stay ahead of the competition.

Thank you,
Chris Mahlberg
