Are you ready for the warehouse space crunch coming in 2023? Warehousing is a critical part of the logistics industry and, unfortunately, it looks like there will be some serious capacity issues ahead.


The falling imports are expected to soften the impact of California’s new Clean Fleet Drayage Rule on warehousing and trucking capacity. The Journal of Commerce reports, “California’s clean-fleet regulation that took effect on January 1 bans about 4,000 drayage trucks with engines of model year 2009 or older from entering the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, or about 16 percent of the registered drayage fleet for the largest US gateway.” This means that warehouses may experience reduced shipments as more cargo is diverted elsewhere.
