Help for Trucker Days returns October 18-19

One-stop program assists drivers seeking Port access

Truck drivers and others can sign up for various official programs and certifications they need to work at the San Pedro Bay ports complex at a one-stop event at the Port of Long Beach scheduled for Oct. 18 and 19.

The “four in one” event will allow truckers to enroll with the Transportation Worker Identification Credential, or TWIC, register for the Clean Truck Program, obtain radio frequency ID tags, and sign up for the Port’s Truck Alert traffic notification system.

The Port of Long Beach is hosting the event in partnership with the Transportation Security Administration and the identity certification company IDEMIA.

The “four-in-one” event is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., on Tuesday, Oct. 18 and Wednesday, Oct. 19 at the Port of Long Beach Terminal Access Center, 1265 Harbor Ave., Long Beach (southwest corner of Harbor Avenue and West Anaheim Street). Free tacos will be available to participants from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, while supplies last.
