The California Air Resources Board estimates approximately 100,000 drayage trucks operate statewide, with nearly 20,000 frequently servicing ports and rail yards. The efficient movement of commodities is critically important to the economy and employment in all major sectors, from agriculture to manufacturing (including finished goods, energy, construction, and retailing) to the service industries.


The Heavy Vehicle Use Tax or HVUT is the fee imposed by the IRS annually on heavy commercial vehicles that operate on public highways with a registered gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more.
