Extra Volumes Snarl Traffic at Port of New York and New Jersey

The Port of New York and New Jersey today reported that traffic congestion throughout the port roadway system has affected the entire New Jersey port complex, particularly the southern Port Elizabeth entrance.

The congestion results from extra volumes moving through terminals in preparation for the Fourth of July holiday.

Port Newark Container Terminal, located in New Jersey’s Port Newark, has also warned of increased container traffic through the terminal over the next several weeks. Although the gate will be operating normally, the terminal has advised customers to refer to its Web site, Twitter page and daily terminal messages for updates regarding these additional volumes.

In addition, PNCT noted that trucks seeking entry to the container terminals in the port will be required to have a duly-issued RFID tag as of July 15. To receive a tag, trucks must be registered in the Port Truck Pass program.


Why hasn't JOC been reporting on the huge delays and problems at Maher terminal since their "system upgrade" over 2 weeks ago???

I agree with Terry Mineo. Maher has shut down operations several times these past few weeks, refused to accept export containers and lines have been out to the NJ turnpike. Police have had to redirect traffic and all movements have been seriously effected where customers supply chains have been suffering drastically.
