Background

On July 2016, California released the Action Plan.  The Action Plan was developed in response to Governor Brown’s Executive Order B-32-15 and led by the Secretaries of the California Transportation Agency, California Environmental Protection Agency, and the Natural Resources Agency.  It was an unprecedented effort to identify State policies, programs, investments, and pilot projects to achieve a freight transport system that meets the State’s transportation, air quality, climate, energy and economic needs.  

The Action Plan includes:

  • A long-term 2050 Vision and Guiding Principles for California’s future freight transport system.
  • Targets for 2030 to guide the State toward meeting the Vision.
  • Opportunities to leverage State freight transport system investments.
  • Actions to initiate over the next five years to make progress towards the Targets and the Vision.
  • Potential pilot projects to achieve on-the-ground progress in the near-term.
  • Additional concepts for further exploration and development, if viable.

The Action Plan elements noted were the results of State agencies implementing a more comprehensive look across the State’s existing policies, programs, and investments to identify opportunities to collaborate and innovate. The Action Plan was the result of significant input received through multi‑agency stakeholder outreach conducted from July 2015 through spring 2016. 

Purpose

As identified in the Action Plan, next steps for the State agencies include continued work with federal, State, industry, labor, regional, local, and environmental and community‑based partners to inform, refine, and implement the state agency actions and pilot projects identified in the Action Plan.  The State agencies continue to seek to engage stakeholders through multiple forums, including: the formation of collaborative stakeholder working groups on economic competitiveness, freight system efficiency, workforce development, advanced technology deployment, and regulatory and permitting process improvements; continued engagement through each State agencies’ regular planning and regulatory development processes; through periodic updates on implementation efforts at California Freight Advisory Committee meetings; and through public workshops such as this.
