Since its inception in 2007, the Coaltion for Responsible Transportation has grown to include leading importers, exporters, trucking companies, clean truck manufacturers and ocean carriers who represent the largest most progressive customers and service providers at our nation's ports.
Through the CRT Clean Truck Initiative, the private sector members of CRT are working in partnership with America's ports to establish clean action plans to develop and implement industry-supported clean truck programs that are both environmentally and economically sustainable.
CRT members are investing millions of dollars in the deployment of new clean equipment in partnership with federal and state governments, and local ports around the country. By partnering together, ports and their customers can improve the environmental quality of our port communities, and ensure that our nation’s ports remain an engine for job creation and a thriving economy.
