Vehicle based Telematics will enable the COG to ensure that the lower-emitting trucks are driven in the specific areas targeted for emissions reductions. Monitoring actual miles driven in specific "geofenced" areas enable the COG to quantify the amounts of pollution avoided through the program, and determine cost effectiveness for the government funds allocated. In addition to these environmental benefits the Quadrant System provides strong theft deterrent and recovery abilities, as well as Homeland Security support if needed through real-time vehicle tracking and identification.
The Gateway Cities are the industrial powerhouse of Los Angeles County. Home to the Port of Long Beach and adjacent to the Port of Los Angeles, the busiest container ports in the U.S., this southeast sub-region of the County provides one out of every seven jobs in Southern California. The 27 cities of the Gateway Cities COG have a combined population of two million people, who live and work in communities as diverse as their populations. Currently, an estimated 16,000 heavy-duty trucks service the Goods Movement sector operating in and around the Gateway Cites sub-region. [July 26, 2007]
