Zero Emissions Container Movement Financial Assessment

The Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles sought to tap into technological innovation to reduce emissions
Aiming to develop a plan for a pollution-free cargo-moving system, the Port of Long Beach (POLB) and the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) initiated a solicitation for technology ideas to replace the diesel trucks traveling between the two ports’ marine terminals and a local rail yard. The ports issued a "Request for Concepts and Solutions," outlining the goals and requirements of the project, known as the zero-emission container mover system (ZECMS).

IMG Rebel played a pivotal role as a member of the panel of experts
The project management team for the Request for Concepts and Solutions included representatives from POLB, POLA, and the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority. The team also enlisted a panel of outside, independent experts, including the USC Keston Institute for Public Finance and Infrastructure Policy, to help evaluate concepts for the ZECMS. IMG Rebel participated as a member of the panel, providing the ports in finding an optimal solution.

IMG Rebel answered the “financial feasibility” question
We reviewed submissions made under the Request for Concepts and Solutions and primarily focused on financial feasibility, funding availability, and project development risks. Our assessments were incorporated into a report delivered to POLA and POLB as part of their deliberative processes.
