The Port Authority of NY/NJ has launched a new container-on-barge service linking Brooklyn’s Red Hook Container Terminal with the Port Newark Container Terminal in New Jersey. The new route is part of an effort to reduce truck traffic and pollution in and near port terminals.

JOC: The barge service is designed to bring goods to and from Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island, rather than take them by road through New Jersey and New York.

“We have a lot of interest, and everyone is asking the same question — when is it going to start?” he [Mike Stamatis, RHCT president and CEO] said. “Obviously, it has numerous benefits to the environment, numerous benefits to reducing the highway maintenance and repairs to roadways and bridges.

And as more volume of cargo moves into the port, moving cargo in and out of terminal facilities by water will be a beneficial and efficient means of moving freight across the harbor.” Read more from JOC here…
