Port of New York and New Jersey

Port of New York and New Jersey

The Port of New York and New Jersey is the busiest container port on the East Coast of the United States. Its terminals are located throughout the New York metropolitan area including Newark, New Jersey. The largest terminal in the port is operated by Maher Terminals.

The Port’s volume growth is driven by the fact that so many vessels make their first U.S. calls at the Port of New York and New Jersey. One-third of the nation’s GDP is produced within 250 miles of that port.

Following the opening of the ExpressRail facility at GCT Bayonne terminal in New Jersey, the Port’s fourth on-dock rail site gives shippers out of that terminal extended reach into Midwest, Southern and U.S. Northeast markets.  GCT Bayonne’s electronic appointment system has also slashed turn times to the extent that dual transactions can sometimes be completed in an hour compared with twice that or more in the past.
