GLOBAL LOGISTICS PROFILE The Port of New York and New Jersey is the gateway to one of the most affluent consumer markets worldwide. It is the largest port on the East Coast, and the third-largest in the nation. Having six container terminal operators, two Class I railroads, multiple trucking services, as well as extensive warehouse and distribution options, means we can do more for your business. You can count on the Port of New York and New Jersey to be a critical link in your supply chain, offering you more service options than any other port on the East Coast. Located in the heart of the Northeast Corridor, the NY/NJ port moves more than $200 billion in cargo each year. Our port offers direct access to all major world markets, and 74 percent of its incoming vessels make our port their first port of call. With major capital investments such as our 50-foot harbor deepening, which was completed in August 2016, and the Bayonne Bridge's navigational clearance for post-Panamax ships, which we expect to be completed by late 2017, the port will remain a premier center for your global trade for decades to come.
