  3. 3. THE ISSUE The Port Drayage industry is predominately serviced by independent contractors operating their own tractors which they have leased to motor carriers. Due to the economic realities of the Port Drayage business, these independent contractors usually purchase older used tractors which have been in service in long-haul freight transporta- tion. Surveys have shown that the average tractor used in Port Drayage is more than ten years old. The Evans’ Port Drayage fleet mirrors this with an average age of eleven years. The following chart illustrates the distribution of the Evans’ fleet by manufacturers' model year. This char also shows the EPA Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Standards for PM and NOx. PORT DRAYAGE TRACTOR REPLACEMENT PROGRAM - PAGE 1
  4. 4. EPA DIESEL ENGINE STANDARDS The following chart lists the EPA Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Stan- dards from 1984 to 2007. All engines manufactured during these periods were required to meet these standards. MODEL YEARS EPA EPA PM After DMF NOx STANDARDS PARTICULATE Retrofit* MATTER (PM) STANDARDS 2007-2010 0.2 PM .01 N/A 2004-2006 2.4 PM .10 .05 -.04 1998-2003 4.0 PM .10 .05 - .04 1994-1997 5.0 PM .10 N/A 1991-1993 5.0 PM .25 N/A 1984-1990 10.7 PM .60 N/A < 1984 N/A N/A N/A * After retrofitting Donaldson Diesel Multistage Filter. The following chart graphically illustrates the relative differences in the EPA Particulate Matter (PM) standards, by year. PORT DRAYAGE TRACTOR REPLACEMENT PROGRAM - PAGE 2
  5. 5. EVANS FLEET BY MODELYEAR This chart shows the number of Evans’ Independent Contractor Tractors in each of the EPA Engine Standards category. MODEL YEARS Number Percentage Percentage of of of Tractors Fleet PM Emissions * 2007-2009 36 2.3% 0.2% 2004-2006 131 8.7% 7.2% 1998-2003 905 60.2% 49.6% 1994-1997 320 21.2% 17.6 1991-1993 63 4.2% 8.6% 1984-1990 47 3.1% 15.5% < 1984 4 0.3% 1.3% TOTAL 1,506 100.0% 100.0% * Weighted average PM emissions based on EPA Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Standards. Our goal is to focus on the replacement of the tractors in the “Red Zone” first. Since these tractors have the heaviest emissions NOx = 10.7-5.0 g/bhp-hr and PM = .60-.25 g/bhp-hr we will target the first phase of this program towards the “Red Zone” equipment. While the “Red Zone” tractors account for only 7.6% of the fleet these same tractors, based on a conservative estimate, account for 25.4% of PM emissions. Subsequently, we would direct our efforts to the older “Yellow Zone” vehicles. No. of Tractors Percentage RED ZONE 114 7.6% YELLOW ZONE 1,356 90.0% GREEN ZONE 36 2.4% PORT DRAYAGE TRACTOR REPLACEMENT PROGRAM - PAGE 3
  6. 6. PROPOSAL/CONCEPT Our primary goal is to replace the 1993 and older Port Drayage trac- tor equipment. This would be accomplished in the following manner. Currently, Evans has 114 of these independent contractors in the fleet. 1. Tractors would be purchased through the Ameriquest Asset Man- agement system from Ameriquest member truck leasing compa- nies. All maintenance records would be provided. The balance of any remaining warranty would be included. 2. Tractors would be equipped with a GPS tracking device in order to locate the vehicle in the event that it becomes necessary. 3. Tractors would be equipped with anti-idling technology such as Espar Cab Heaters (where appropriate). 4. Where necessary and beneficial, tractors would be equipped with the appropriate emission reduction devices such as Donaldson Diesel Multistage filters or Diesel Oxidation Catalysts filters. 5. The vehicle being replaced would be salvaged so that it could not be resold or exported. 6. Interested independent contractors would be screened and quali- fied in order to participate in the program. 7. Independent contractors would lease purchase the newer tractor on a 36 to 48 month direct finance lease with an option to pur- chase the tractor at the expiration of the lease. 8. The conditions of the program would require that if the independ- ent contractor decided to terminate his/her relationship with Ev- ans they would be required to buy the vehicle at a predetermined price (per the lease) or return the vehicle to Evans so that the ve- hicle could be re-seated.

  7. 7. FINANCIAL STRUCTURE • Grant Funds: Down Payment $15,000 for a 2007 Tractor and $10,000 for a 2006 Tractor. • Evans Matching funds: $3,500 (used to purchase the vehicle being replaced) • Driver Payment Escrow: Three (3) Payments (May be waived) • Leasing Company/Lender Funds: Balance • Direct finance lease from Cure Leasing & Maintenance, LLC. The term would be dependent on the age of the tractor, at acquisi- tion. Model Year 2007 = 48 Months Model Year 2006 = 36 Months • $5,600 to $8,000 purchase option at the end of the term. • Possible warranty purchase and replacement vehicle insurance • Evans to collect the payments, from independent contractor set- tlements and remit to Cure Leasing & Maintenance • Evans guarantees re-seating of the vehicle in the event of default REPLACEMENT TRACTOR SPECIFICATIONS Year(s): 2006-2007 Type: Day Cab or Sleeper Manufacturer(s): Freightliner, International, Volvo Engine(s): Cummins or Detroit Diesel Horsepower Range: 400-450 PORT DRAYAGE TRACTOR REPLACEMENT PROGRAM - PAGE 5
