The Port of New York and New Jersey is slowly returning to norma following the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy’s tidal surge on Monday night.
After two terminals in Port Elizabeth, N.J. started receiving calls by container ships on Sunday, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said two more terminals, Port Newark Container Terminal and Global Terminal would reopen on Monday.
Both PNCT and Global will open their gates for truckers at 7 a.m. Monday. The first ship is expected to arrive at the Global Terminal at 7 p.m. Monday. Port Newark Container Terminal also is expecting vessel traffic to resume Monday night.
On Sunday, four cargo vessels were expected at Maher Terminal and one cargo vessel was expected at APM Terminal, both in Port Elizabeth.
Longshoremen were back to work and unloading cargo at approximately 8 a.m. Sunday.
