Goods Movement Trucks

Replace or repower heavy-duty diesel-fueled trucks or install charging & fueling infrastructure with funding from the Goods Movement Program. This program aims to reduce air pollution from equipment primarily moving freight and commercial goods along California’s major trade routes.

Year 5 Goods Movement Program – Heavy Duty Diesel Trucks

The Air District is not currently accepting truck project applications for projects to replace or repower commercial diesel-fueled trucks with new alternative-fueled equipment, install charging and fueling infrastructure, or install truck-stop electrification with grant funding. For information about Carl Moyer Program grants for commercial diesel truck replacement, repower, conversion, and electric (battery) charging infrastructure projects, please visit the Air District's Carl Moyer Program web page.

The Goods Movement Program provides grants for owners of eligible class 5, class 6, class 7, and class 8 (GVWR 16,001-33,001+ lbs) diesel-fueled trucks that comply with the CA Truck & Bus Regulation and owners of freight distribution or parking facilities where infrastructure can be installed. Truck replacement and truck charging/fueling infrastructure applications are accepted through our online application system.

Please review the information below to determine if your equipment meets program eligibility requirements. Applications must be complete to be considered for funding.

Preliminary Ranklist: Truck Solicitations

The Air District has posted the Year 5 preliminary ranklists for completed solicitation periods.

Equipment shown on the preliminary ranklist has met basic eligibility criteria for the Program; however, appearance on the ranklist does not guarantee that equipment will receive Program funding. 

Selection for funding is contingent upon a full evaluation to determine if a project meets all Program requirements, including passing pre-inspection, successful completion of ARB’s Proposition 1B compliance check, and availability of Program funds. Compliant and eligible projects that are ranked above the funding line (meaning, the point at which funds are exhausted) will be evaluated for contracting in the order of ranking. At their own risk, owners of equipment shown on the preliminary ranklist for Solicitation 3 are allowed to place orders for replacement equipment; however, the Air District will not allocate funding to proposed projects until the equipment owner fully executes a grant agreement under terms and conditions of the Program.

For Year 5 applicants who applied to replace diesel-fueled trucks with alternative-fueled trucks that are not yet available for purchase on the market (e.g., class 7-8 zero-emission or hybrid zero-emission mile trucks, class 7-8 trucks with optional low-NOx engines, or class 8 hybrid trucks), staff are processing applications to contract for equipment delivery in 2018 or later, based on the availability of the specific technology for purchase (to complete the funded project).

Contracting for any project cannot occur if eligibility or compliance requirements are not met. If staff has requested that the applicant submit required or missing items for the project, applicants should do so quickly to avoid delays in evaluation or contracting.

Submit required materials for your project - Owners of equipment shown on the preliminary ranklist may upload required materials for their projects directly into the online system by logging into their accounts and clicking the Add Attachments button on the first screen (which shows the equipment table). 

Materials may also be faxed or mailed to the BAAQMD office – please write your application (project) number or license plate of each truck on materials mailed or faxed to the office.

Regulatory compliance - Program eligibility assumes that a truck and the fleet are already compliant at the time the owner applies for a grant. If staff notify applicants that their projects cannot be funded due to regulatory non-compliance, owners must work with ARB TRUCRS staff to correct fleet reporting problems. If compliance issues cannot be resolved with ARB, the fleet is not eligible for YR5 Goods Movement Program funding. 

Project Types

The following projects are eligible for funding under this program:

  • Equipment/vehicle replacement - replace freight-hauling diesel trucks (medium-duty and heavy-duty engine cycles only) with the cleanest available equipment (class 5, class 6, class 7, and class 8)
  • Engine repower (small fleets only) - repower diesel truck engine with 2016 or newer zero-emissions or alternatively fueled engine
  • Truck stop electrification - install electric infrastructure to reduce diesel engine idling where trucks congregate
  • Charging and fueling infrastructure - install electric charging or hydrogen fueling infrastructure for trucks 


Heavy-duty diesel trucks

Existing diesel equipment for consideration must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Primarily hauls commercial freight, bulk, or goods for sale or for purchase on the major CA trade corridor routes (map) and at least 10 percent of annual operations in the Bay Area trade corridor (applicants may be asked to document truck vocation and usage history)
  • Existing engine is medium-heavy (MHD) or heavy-heavy (HHD) duty and manufactured 2009 or earlier (for class 5 trucks, engine manufacture must be between 2000-2009; for class 6 trucks, engine manufacture must be between 1998-2009)
  • Has a manufacturer-rated Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 16,001 lbs or heavier
  • Has traveled a minimum of 20,000 miles/year (for class 5-6 trucks, minimum of 10,000 miles/year) with at least 75 percent of its operations inside California for each of the past two years
  • Has been registered with CA-based DMV or CA-based apportioned (IRP) for the past two years
  • Truck and fleet currently complies with the California Truck and Bus Regulation 
  • For 2-for-1 replacement, 3-way truck exchange and truck plus charging/fueling infrastructure projects, each existing truck complies with Program and fleet regulation requirements

Electric charging or hydrogen fueling infrastructure

  • Equipment owner agrees to replace one or more diesel-fueled trucks in their fleet with trucks powered by the fuel type matching the charging or fueling infrastructure installed for the project
  • Applicant must meet required legal, permitting and engineering requirements for installation

Truck stop electrification infrastructure

  • Installed at a truck stop, intermodal facility, or distribution center within the four CA trade corridors
  • Applicant must meet required legal, permitting, and engineering requirements for installation

Fleet size and compliance requirements

The Goods Movement Program defines a large fleet as four or more diesel trucks with GVWR greater than 14,000 lbs under common ownership or control, and a small fleet as three or fewer diesel trucks with GVWR greater than 14,000 lbs under common ownership or control. For the purposes of the third Year 5 solicitation, at the time of application and throughout the life of the project, the applicant’s fleet and each truck must be compliant with the CA Truck & Bus Regulation.

This program cannot accept applications for diesel trucks subject to any regulatory compliance deadline prior to January 1, 2018. Trucks with a January 1, 2019, deadline to upgrade equipment must complete projects no later than December 31, 2018. Please apply as early as possible for projects requiring completion by the end of 2018.

How to Apply

  • Review the application assistance documents in the Additional Information section below
  • Determine the eligibility of your existing equipment and fleet
  • Select the project type
  • Gather information about your truck and engine (and retrofit as applicable) before starting the online application
  • Apply for funding online - using only ONE application, apply for all trucks or equipment for which you are interested in receiving a grant (do not start a new application for each truck). Charging/fueling infrastructure can be entered on the same truck replacement application with your trucks. 
  • Charging/fueling infrastructure and truck stop electrification projects submit a proposal containing the required items in Appendix A (see link below)

Additional Information

Certified Truck Dealers

Following is a list of Air District certified truck dealers. Certified vendors have a contract with the Air District to inspect your old truck and sell you a new/used truck that will be compliant with California truck regulations. The Air District recommends, but does not require, the use of an Air District certified truck dealer.
