Awarded by the Alternative Fuel Vehicles Institute at the Alternative Fuel Vehicles National Conference & Expo in Orlando, FL for being the first in line with alternative fuel vehicles to operate in full-time drayage service at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
When the San Pedro Bay Ports crafted a clean air policy, Victor La Rosa, President of TTSI, was the first in line with alternative fuel vehicles (AFV) to operate in full-time drayage service at the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. TTSI has invested $15 million in LNG and clean diesel trucks and plans to replace half of its 300 truck fleet with AVFs.
Mr. La Rosa appreciates the business case, but equally compelling is a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. "We all have a responsibility to protect the environment", said Mr. La Rosa.
