East Coast Ports

In-depth news, analysis and statistical information of U.S. East Coast ports such as the Port of New York and New Jersey and the Port of Savannah.

East Coast ports have spent the last several years preparing for the opening of the new locks of the Panama Canal, which handled their first commercial transit on June 26, 2016. Industry observers are now watching closely to see if East Coast ports begin to capture a larger share of imports from Asia, which the West Coast has traditionally dominated.
