NYCEDC: Our Role in Goods Movement
  • Oversee transportation and infrastructure projects that make transit within the Tri-state region more efficient.
  • Manage the redevelopment of the City's seaport and rail facilities to help improve the distribution of goods in the New York area.
  • Implement PlaNYC Marine Transportation Goals
background port statistics


Background: Port statistics

Port stats:

  • Third-largest port in the US; largest on East Coast
  • 2,780 acres
  • Employs 3,500 longshoremen
  • 5,000 annual ship calls
  • 4.5M containers handled annually

Newark/ Port Elizabeth

Sunset Park

Howland Hook

Port trends:

  • Demand for non-container cargo uses
  • Demand for additional cruise capacity
  • New York City businesses seeking to lower transportation costs
  • Increased demand for over-water delivery of construction materials

significance of the marine cargo system
Significance of the Marine Cargo System
  • The region’s maritime facilities and operations are essential to the economy of the City of New York, and to the everyday lives of its residents and employees
    • Gateway to global markets for NYC export businesses (20 million tons and $40 billion in value, 2008)
    • Access to imported materials and products for NYC businesses and consumers (70 million tons and $140 billion in value, 2008)
    • Fuel-efficient “green transportation” of domestic fuel, food, bldg materials (60 million tons in 2008, saved 7 million gallons of fuel)
    • New York City jobs, business output, and tax revenues: over 9,000 direct and 31,800 total jobs, nearly $2.1 billion in personal income, nearly $6.8 billion in business revenues, nearly $1.3 billion in fed/state/local tax revenues (2008; CS and ASW, Inc.)
    • Less than 7% of regional truck moves

Cargo—Red Hook
  • Current operations:
    • Container terminal and warehousing
    • No public waterfront access
    • Approximately 45,000 containers = about 2% of total port
    • Total of 220 full and part-time jobs
    • Mostly automated operations; not job-intensive
    • Most containers barged to Port Newark

New York’s challenge

  • Limited space for typical distribution centers, but lots of consumer demand
    • Higher freight costs driven by fuel costs, tolls, taxes
    • Higher environmental costs driven by climate change
    • Overweight, dimensional restrictions and tolls raise transportation costs
  • New York needs a new paradigm for waterborne freight logistics
  • Ship: Low sulfur diesel
  • Marine terminal close to consumer market
  • Zero or low emission yard equipment

Paradigm shift: Phoenix Beverages moves to Red Hook
  • Ships carrying containers of beer from Europe and the Caribbean call at Pier 10 in Red Hook instead of at Port Elizabeth
  • Phoenix strips containers inside Piers 7 and 11 and distribute products for local consumption
  • Phoenix has committed to convert its local distribution fleet to CNG
  • This will reduce 20,000 truck trips annually
  • It represents a 20 percent increase in container movement in the Port of Red Hook
  • Retains 400 NYC jobs and creates 100 new Brooklyn jobs
