In December of 2008 the California Air Resource Board approved the On Road Heavy Duty Diesel Vehicle Regulation. The purpose of this new law is to reduce the emissions from existing on-road diesel vehicles operating throughout California. However, this new regulation is drastically affecting trucking companies throughout the state of California. Trucking companies across state lines are left with a few costly options to comply with the On Road Heavy Duty Diesel Vehicle Regulation. This case study focuses on two similar trucking companies and how they went about complying with the new regulation and which options have been most effective for their business. The findings from this case study are intended to help other trucking companies comply with the new regulation with the least significant impact on their business.
