A board of commissioners at the Port of Long Beach are set to vote on a proposal by Toyota Logistics Services to reconfigure its facility at Pier B.
Toyota, which also has plans to build a renewable fuel-cell power plant and hydrogen fuelling station at the port, will find out if its bid is successful after a final study and Notice of Intent has been issued.
The board of Harbour Commissioners will vote on the potential project on August 13, 2018.
Dr Noel Hacegaba, Chief Commercial Officer of the Port of Long Beach, discusses trimming truck turn times
The Port of Long Beach has already performed an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND), which found no substantial evidence that the project would have an adverse impact on the environment.
Currently, Toyota operates a marine terminal at the port for the off-loading, processing and transportation of vehicles.
Under the new proposals, the company will also streamline its operations by consolidating a number of facilities, such as offices and a servicing centre, into one.
The California Energy Commissioning (CEC) recently awarded Shell Oil Products US and Toyota $8 million in funding to develop the first hydrogen-truck refuelling station at the Port of Long Beach, as part of a renewable program that looks to develop green infrastructure across the supply chain.
