Maher Terminals has announced that it will be open for the delivery of import cargo on Saturday, June 15, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Port of New York and New Jersey. The empty depot located at Columbia will also be open for the dispatch and receipt of empty containers at the same time.
Maher has asked users to check its Web site after 4 p.m. on Friday, June 14, for specific empty return information.
The terminal opened at 6 a.m. this morning with all systems operating, although it is still experiencing heavy gate volume that is expected to continue for the remainder of the week and might close entrances as necessary.
In the first half of this week, the terminal intermittently closed its gates after experiencing computer glitches during its changeover to a new operating system, resulting in long truck lines. Maher extended free time and is waiving demurrage charges through Sunday, June 16, in response.
