South Carolina Port Truckers Face Clean Truck Program Deadline

Registration for the South Carolina Ports Authority’s Clean Truck Certification Program ends December 31st.


Truckers doing business in South Carolina's ports have just a few remaining days to register for the South Carolina Ports Authority’s (SCPA) Clean Truck Certification Program, a program that requires trucks serving container terminals to be fitted with engines manufactured in 1994 or later. SCPA oversees the ports of Charleston, Georgetown and an inland port in Greer.

SCPA made available a limited number of hardship registrations on a first-come, first-served basis for trucks that have called on terminals at least 52 times in the previous year, according to the ports authority. Those registrations will expire June 30.

Trucks that aren’t certified and don’t have a hardship registration will be allowed a one-time entrance to port terminals. SCPA plans to conduct on-site spot checks to confirm engine compliance. In November, SCPA offered incentives of $5,000 plus scrap value to truck owners who upgraded their engines.

Truck owners must register via the program’s website at cleantruck.scspa.com. For more information, click HERE.
